New Wastewater Plant Design Takes Shape

New Wastewater Plant plans overview

Sioux Center’s new wastewater treatment plant will feature smart design and natural processes to serve the community’s needs now and in the future.

The Sioux Center City Council viewed the plans for the new plant and approved the next step: seeking construction bids.

The proposed plant is being built to meet new, more stringent DNR standards and replace the community’s aging wastewater facility. The design includes new and added treatment processes to meet those standards, resulting in even cleaner water discharged.

“We know this is a costly project for our community, but we are working to build a stewardly wastewater plant that will serve us for generations to come. We are not just making the best decision for today, but also for the future of Sioux Center,” said Utility Manager Murray Hulstein.

Construction could potentially begin this fall. The new plant will be built just west of the existing plant, near the intersection of 13th Avenue and 20th Street SE. Plans call for the plant to be operational by mid-2020.

The City of Sioux Center’s sanitary sewer system collects and treats wastewater produced by more than 2,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers and is paid for with user fees from these customers.
