The City of Sergeant Bluff has a State-of-the-Art water treatment plant. The plant is capable of producing 2.7 mgd (million gallons per day) and has the ability to upgrade production to 4.2 mgd. Three wells were part of the construction plans bringing the total number of wells to four. These wells are capable of yielding 4.9 mgd at their peak. The water treatment plant is operated by one full-time employee who is responsible for the plant's day-to-day operations. There is approximately 18 miles of underground piping. Two ground storage tanks up on the bluff can hold 1.2 million gallons and produce the main pressure up to 59 psi (pounds per square inch). The water department is upgrading its water metering systems to automatic reading systems which will provide greater accuracy of water usage through the system.
The water treatment plant produces a chlorine residual of 1.50 ppm (parts per million). Iron and Manganese are removed down to 0.02 ppm and 0.059 ppm respectively. The water hardness runs 25 grains per gallon.
