water resource recovery Department
The Water Resource Recovery Department (WRRD) opened the new facility in October 2022! The previous location was our home for 44 years. The plant is located northwest of Indianola. As the city grew, so did the sewer system. We outgrew our old location and decided to build a new plant. Federal grants primarily funded the new plant construction.
The team is in charge of seven Lift Stations throughout Indianola as well as 68 pumps associated with the equipment on a daily basis.
The team consists of Superintendent Rick Graves, four State Licensed Operators, and one apprentice. There is always an Operator on call 24/7 in case of emergencies; an emergency may be a failure of equipment or sewer backups and many other things.
