Water Warning Lifted Thanks to Additional Water Supply

Water conservation requirements for Sioux Center have been lifted thanks to the new supply of water from the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System.

This week, the Sioux Center City Council lifted the Water Warning that had been in place since last July. It had prohibited water use outside of set times and purposes to decrease demand on the local water system and aquifers during the drought, allowing them to adequately supply local water needs.

The addition of Lewis & Clark water to Sioux Center’s supply this spring now brings an additional 800,000 gallons of water a day to Sioux Center.

“Our compliments to our community for their response to the Water Warning,” said Utilities Manager Murray Hulstein. “Their conservation really helped cut the peaks of our water use. Also, a big thanks to our Water Department, led by Harlan Kruid, for meeting our system demands through the drought.”

The community's water conservation allowed the City to stay out of a Water Emergency during that time.

Mayor David Krahling and the council also thanked the community for responding well to the Water Warning, voting unanimously to lift the Water Warning and complimenting the community’s stewardship.

“Water is a natural resource, and we need to use it wisely,” Krahling said. 

The Sioux Center Water Department provides quality water to more than 2,600 customers, drawn from local aquifers and the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System, treated to exceed all federal and state standards.
