A small group of central Iowa water utilities (Des Moines Water Works, West Des Moines Water Works and Urbandale Water) began meeting last spring to try to identify a path forward for regionalizing water production. They deserve a lot of credit for hard work and perseverance, as this topic is fraught with obstacles and pitfalls. Yet, Just as was the case for regional wastewater management, it must be done to secure the future economic viability of central Iowa. A regional approach lowers unit costs through economies of scale and by pooling the risk of over-building.

Kudos to Local Water Leaders
