Remsen Water Pilot Project Underway

On February 28, Remsen’s Water Treatment Plant shifted source water. The Facility has previously used water blended from several shallow and deep wells. Elevated nitrate in the shallow wells has prompted the facility to consider utilizing only the deep well water. This change will be evaluated over the next 90 days by Remsen Municipal Utility’s staff and engineers from Bolton and Menk, Inc. in close contact with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources


All water sent to Remsen’s residents has met, and will continue to meet, the drinking water standards for safe consumption.


If you have any questions, please contact Gayrey Whitfield with Remsen Municipal Utilities at 712-305-1675.
