EAST HILL PUBLIC SAFETY FACILITY AND STORAGE SITE (formerly IDOT Lake Park Boulevard site) - A request for qualifications has been issued to select an engineering firm to provide preliminary design and cost estimates for the project. The site is tentatively planned to be used by the Department of Public Works, Muscatine Fire Department, and Muscatine Police Department among others.
DUAL USE REDUNDANT FORCE MAIN PROJECT - A study of the existing conditions with regards to the current force main, a concept design, and estimated costs has been completed with final design work underway. The project complies with a DNR/EPA mandate to complete the installation of the dual use redundant force main by 2026 after a force main failure due to a collapsed portion of the line from Musser Park to the Water and Resource Recovery Facility that resulted in an emergency repair during the winter of 2017-2018.
