COVID Safety Measures

March 17, 2020


The Keokuk Municipal Waterworks is closely following the guidance from the CDC and also any state government recommendations. The situation with the virus is constantly changing and we take preparation measures seriously. Below is a list of actions to be taken by the Waterworks in response:

  • Closing of the front lobby to encourage social  distancing
  • Canceling late penalties, late fees, meter changes and shut-offs until the public health emergency has been lifted.
  • We highly encourage “on time” payments.
  • We know the current situation will pose financial hardships and we will be happy to answer any questions by phone.

Today’s primary concern is the health and safety of our community and our Waterworks family. The drive through remains open for payments, but we ask that you use the on-line payment option or use our drop box located at the front door.

 

Keokuk Waterworks "finished" drinking water remains safe. The COVID-19 virus, has not been detected in drinking water. EPA recommends that Americans continue to use and drink tap water as usual. 


 

Keokuk has Best Tasting Water

 Daily Gate City- Nov 6, 2019


waterworks award


Water utilities compete at the Iowa American Water Works Association (AWWA) for the title of “Best tasting water in Iowa.” Every year, between 10 and 20 waterworks from across the state vie for bragging rights at the annual AWWA conference of who has the best tasting water in Iowa.

Keokuk Waterworks has taken home the grand prize for 2019. Judging criteria is based on odor, taste, aftertaste and appearance. Keokuk won this same award in 2005 and 2015.

“Treating the Mississippi River comes with ups and downs on an average year. In 2019, we have had three record flood stages. The Waterworks has talented operators with the ability to adjust to the variable conditions the river throws at us,” Plant Superintendent Jim Maddox said.

The Keokuk Waterworks is a state of the art surface water treatment plant that draws its water from the Mississippi River. Keokuk Waterworks uses advanced filtration with membrane filters for the public’s protection in filtering the processed water.

“KMW is committed to excellence and has invested in new treatment technologies and replacement of aging pipe infrastructure. We are honored to accept this award and take the responsibility of water treatment as an opportunity and a challenge to produce the best water at the lowest cost,” Board President Otto Hausch said.

KMW is now shifting their focus from the treatment plant to the distribution system, which carries our water to residents and industries. The Waterworks is proud of the high quality drinking water and take this award as a reminder of the excellence the City of Keokuk expects from it.

Some of the people that have made the award possible include Plant Superintendent: Jim Maddox, Plant Asst. Superintendent: Bill Seabold, Lab Technician: Jennifer Laubersheimer, Plant Operators: Chris Tallman, Don Oliver, Robert Gundy, Shannon Helenthal, Brandon Lemaster, Kyle Haney, Ryan Horner, Drew Lewis and Adam Hieatt and the Keokuk Municipal Waterworks Board President: Otto M. Hausch, Trustees: David Bogner, Kimberly Boyd, Michael Hickey, and Ray Long.
