Final Pipe Section Laid for Sioux Center Water Connection

Sioux Center officials joined engineers, contractors, pipe suppliers, Hull officials, and staff from the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System on September 14 to celebrate the final section of 24-inch ductile pipe being constructed in the 33.8 mile stretch between Beresford and Sioux Center.  

The final section of pipe was installed on the east side of the community of Lebanon.  

“This is a very exciting golden spike milestone. We have been waiting for it a long time. Our area has been blessed with growth and the long-awaited water from Lewis & Clark will help us sustain that growth for future generations,” said Lewis & Clark Water System Chairman Murray Hulstein, of Sioux Center, who has been attending L&C meetings since 1990.   

Work continues on the water tower at Beresford, meter buildings at Sioux Center and Hull, and adding pumps to the Beresford pump station. 

“All this infrastructure needs to be completed before Sioux Center and Hull can begin receiving water, which is expected in early 2023, but finally getting all the pipe in the ground to connect South Dakota and Iowa is a momentous occasion to celebrate,” said Hulstein.  

 In Sioux Center, the Lewis & Clark water will be mixed with Sioux Center's water supply from local aquifers.

Those in attendance for the final section being placed signed their names on the blue wrap that helps protect the zinc coated pipe from corrosion.  

Sioux Center Municipal Utilities provides quality water drawn from local aquifers, treated to exceed all federal and state standards, to 2,934 accounts in the community.
