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.

The Urbandale Water Utility will hold a public meeting and provide information and opportunity for comment on December 14th at 4:30.  For more information, please read the reports linked below.
