The water department is currently flushing hydrants. The hydrant flushing usually takes about ten (10) days. This may cause discolored water. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please sign up for emergency notifications for the City of David City using IRIS (Immediate Response Information System) using the attached link. This will enable us to notify you of water main breaks, electric outages, etc. Click on the red “IRIS” below to sign up!
Due to recent rains David City is dealing with high water tables. We have seen our aging sanitary sewer system being overrun with infiltration. This means that ground water and possibly resident’s sump pumps are filling up the system and overpowering it not allowing it to run properly. Disposing of sump pump water or water from gutters into the sanitary system is unlawful and against city ordinance. We also have been experiencing issues with household trash and other debris that should not be flushed. We are asking the public to help regulate these matters immediately in order to help relieve our problems with our sanitary sewer system. Johnson Services will be in town in the next couple of weeks doing extensive televising of our system to find what areas we need to fix/address right away. While using the camera we will be able to tell if sump pump water is being discharged into our system. If found we will be forced to deal with these issues and demand the home owner or resident to cease discharging into the system. This violation can be punishable by a $100 fine.
