Eagle Grove Water Reclamation Facility

Eagle Grove, IA | Water

Overview

The City of Eagle Grove and Prestage Foods of Iowa worked together with ISG to bring a major water reclamation facility to the area that would serve the local community and nearby pork plant.


Opportunity

The City and Prestage both saw an opportunity to address mutual needs and stimulate economic growth in the area through a shared infrastructure project.

Solution

The City of Eagle Grove, Iowa, and Prestage Foods of Iowa partnered with ISG to design a unique wastewater treatment facility. The City’s new wastewater plant will serve the community’s needs while also serving Prestage’s pork plant water reclamation needs. Under this public-private partnership, the City will treat Prestage’s wastewater, and Prestage will pay the City for the wastewater it sends to the new facility. The City and Prestage worked together to secure funding for the project through a State Revolving Loan fund.

The facility, built on 22 acres of land near the City’s existing wastewater plant includes the water reclamation plant, force main, and lift station. The facility will also be able to accommodate community growth, as well as the expansion of Prestage’s business. The facility will have the capacity to treat an average of 4.15 million gallons per day.


“Many things have changed as the project evolved, but ISG’s commitment and ability to provide the right expertise when needed and on short notice has remained constant throughout.”

- Bryce Davis, City Administrator, City of Eagle Grove
