Water Main Flushing - Deer Haven

by Daniel Purcell 10/23/2017
There will be water main flushing ongoing in the Deer Haven area for the new plats. This could affect the Polk City area. During the main flushing process it is recommended that you check for discolored water before you start any process that discolored water could negatively affect; such as laundry, showering, etc. Low water pressure is a potential outcome of water main flushing and is only temporary. If you experience low water pressure during the flushing process wait until the crews have finished the flushing process and check your water pressure. Thank you for your understanding during this process.

Preventative Sanitary Sewer Cleaning

by Daniel Purcell 9/27/2017
The City of Polk City has contracted with a company named Central Iowa Televising to perform preventative maintenance by cleaning the sanitary sewer. This will improve the sewer's performance and significantly reduce the chance for future sewer backups and related problems.  Please be sure to follow the link below to view the map which shows the areas in green where cleaning is scheduled to take place. CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE MAP The cleaning process causes a vacuum in the sewer. This will not affect most homes, but some homes may be affected that have inadequate or partially blocked drain vents. The vacuum may cause "P-traps" (the little S shaped bend in the pipe under sinks and drains) to be sucked dry. Should you notice a sewer smell resulting from this, run a little water in your drains to refill the P-traps. It is recommended that you shut the water valve off to your toilet(s), put the toilet seat(s) down and cover floor drains with car mats on the days that the sewer cleaning is scheduled. This will minimize any possible splashing of the P-trap water in homes that are poorly vented. Please take these precautions Monday through Friday, October 2-13, 2017.  In the event of weather or other complications we will notify you if it extends beyond this time frame.
