What difference will the new water treatment facility in Davenport, which is officially underway, make for the community?
First, the good news. The new water treatment plant improvements will provide a number of important benefits to the Davenport community:
1. The facility will meet the latest state water quality standards, thus assuring a high level of safe water to drink.
2. An enlarged water tank will be constructed, enhancing the level of fire protection in the community.
3. Due to the increased federal funding for the project's construction, the impact on the community's water rates for the $1.5 million plus project will be significantly less than expected.
