Water Distribution

The Water Distribution Division is responsible for maintaining approximately 100 miles of water mains ranging in size from 2 to 24 inches, 635 fire hydrants and 4,500 service lines. Our staff install, remove, test and repair over 4,600 water meters.

The City of Fort Madison's goal is to provide a water distribution system that has a minimal amount of unaccounted water, meet all public fire protection needs, and to accurately and systematically read all water meters so that the cost of water services may be equitably distributed among all water customers.
