East Growth Area Utilities – Water and Sewer

A 2011 Sanitary Sewer Service Study done by FOX clearly revealed a critical need to provide sewer service to a future growth area east of the city. Proactive collection system planning made it possible to proceed with almost $5 million in improvements to sewer and water systems, paving the way for additional economic growth. In […]

Water Treatment Plant

Challenge: North Liberty’s Water Treatment Plant was originally constructed in the late 1970s and underwent its first expansion in 2001, a project that was expected to have a 10-year life. However, population growth exceeded optimistic projections and demand was quickly reaching capacity. Upgrades were made to increase well capacity and an Aquifer Storage and Recovery […]

Water Treatment Plant Improvements

CHALLENGE: The city’s existing water treatment facility, which underwent its last major expansion in 1992, utilized an electrodialysis reversal (EDR) treatment process.  Portions of the facility that housed the city’s high service pump dated back to 1924. While the EDR systems provided the city with many years of reliable service, aging equipment and lack of […]

Water Treatment Plant

Challenge:  A founding partner of FOX Engineering, Dave Fox was responsible for the 1977 design and construction of the original 10 million-gallon-day (MGD) water treatment plant in Marshalltown. In 1997 water demands were increasing rapidly; production at the lime softening plant was approaching capacity, and many components needed to be replaced or upgraded. Major improvements […]

Water Treatment Plant

Challenge: The city of Ames began municipal water service to its residents in 1891; the first treatment efforts followed in 1924. Treatment processes evolved from simple iron removal to more sophisticated lime softening and disinfection, always with a focus on providing the best quality water possible to its customers. The most recent plant expansion occurred […]

Water Treatment Plant – Utilities

Over the past few decades, Ames Water and Pollution Control has chosen FOX Engineering as design engineer for various well and water system improvements. Design for the new 15 MGD water treatment plant, along with site planning, stormwater management, and utility installation, are the most recent improvements. The plant was completed in August 2017. On […]

Water Tower

The Marshalltown Water Works owns and operates the water distribution system serving Marshalltown and a large portion of the Central Iowa Water Association (CIWA).

2000 Water Treatment Plant Improvements

Aging facilities and insufficient capacity required the Water Works board to consider how they could best solve these critical issues.

Water Treatment Plant

Population growth had stressed the capacity of the water system. There was only one reliable well and it could not meet demand on a peak use day and water quality from the Jordan aquifer well was not good.

Ultrafiltration Water Treatment Plant

The $12 million construction project included improvements to every part of the treatment plant, including pumping, chemical feed systems, clarification, and filtration.
