The City of Dubuque’s Eagle Point Water Plant sources water from aquifers and produces an average of 6.5 million gallons of treated water per day. The treated water is distributed through more than 330 miles of water mains, that are controlled by 8,078 control valves. The City’s water supply is available to over 2,646 fire hydrants and to more than 23,880 service connections.

“Providing high quality drinking water to our community is a tremendous responsibility. Our water department staff takes care in treating and distributing the City’s water supply, and pride in delivering it to our customers at an affordable cost,” said City of Dubuque Water Department Director, Christopher Lester.

When compared to the other large cities in Iowa that soften their drinking water, Dubuque has the fourth-lowest rate, which translates to $39.06 per month for the average household usage of 6,000 gallons, or simply stated, 65 cents per 100 gallons.
