The city's current wastewater treatment plant was constructed in 1978 and designed for a population of 11,600 residents. With the current facility beyond its useful life of 30 years, aging infrastructure, and stricter regulations, replacement of the current plant is necessary. This page has been created to provide updates, progress reports, and other information to aid in answering questions regarding the new wastewater treatment plant project.
In September 2018 the City, along with the Indianola Chamber of Commerce and Warren County Economic Development Corporation partnered with the Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) to conduct an assessment of our community’s downtown square. This process was a wonderful success due to the engagement and input from the community. As a result of this assessment, a key recommendation was for the community to engage in a streetscape design process.
