April 18, 2019

On March 18, 2019, a member of Xenia’s management team and our General Manager attended a City Council meeting at the City of Bagley.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss Bagley’s water quality problem and possible solutions to the problem.  Bagley recently found that their water has a high concentration of manganese and they have been directed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to alert their water customers to not drink the water.  After the DNR described how recent research showed a health concern with high levels of manganese, two alternatives to resolve the problem were discussed.

A water main breaks somewhere in the U.S. every two minutes. Most pipes have an average life expectancy of 50 years, but in many major cities, water pipes are more than 100 years old.
