Hamilton Associates, P.C., a Council Bluffs, Iowa accounting firm, on April 10, 2015 released an audit report on the Council Bluffs City Water Works in Council Bluffs, Iowa.

Expenses totaled $10,060,733 for the year ended December 31, 2014 an increase of 5.86% from the prior year. Included in this amount were $3,839,793 for water purification, maintenance and distribution costs, $3,136,798 for general, administrative, and customer accounting costs, and $3,084,142 for depreciation. A copy of the audit report is available for review in the Office of Auditor of State and the Council Bluffs City Water Works.


During the next few weeks, Council Bluffs Water Works crews will be operating and flushing fire hydrants throughout the City as part of routine maintenance of the water distribution system. It is possible that customers may notice discoloration in the water for short periods of time near the areas where flushing is taking place. This is normal and the water is safe at all times. However, if discoloration is present the Water Works recommends that customers run the tap for a short period of time until the water is clear and to avoid doing laundry while the water is discolored. If any discoloration persists please notify the Water Works Office at 712-328-1006 between 8:00 A.M – 4:30 P.M. Monday – Friday or 712-328-9577 after normal business hours.
