Regional Water Utility Information Center

The Urbandale Water Utility (UWU) has been diligently seeking out opportunities to control the ever-increasing cost of providing water to its customers.  Since 1934 Urbandale has purchased all of its water from Des Moines Water Works (DMWW). In recent years the increase of wholesale rates has prompted the UWU Board of Trustees to look for other alternatives.  Please click the link below for the latest information regarding Central Iowa Water Works, a Regional Drinking Water System.

The Urbandale Water Utility will be holding an informational meeting on Central Iowa Water Works (CIWW) at 6:00 on October 9th at the City of Urbandale Library.
