CLINTON, IA (Aug. 4, 2017) – Learn more about your drinking water while having fun on a summer evening! Iowa American Water is inviting customers and the community to experience the wonderful world of water at its upcoming WATER FEST celebration on Tuesday, Aug. 8 from 4 – 7 p.m. at the company’s West Treatment Plant in Camanche, Iowa. The treatment plant is located on Camanche Industrial Park Road off of Highway 67 in Camanche.

WATER FEST will kick off with a ribbon cutting and water toast with the Clinton Area Chamber of Commerce ambassadors at 4:15 p.m. The FREE, family-friendly open house will offer guided water treatment plant tours, educational displays, children’s activities, games and prizes and FREE food. The company’s mascot “Puddles” will also be available during the event. The event will be held rain or shine.

“We are finding that our customers are increasingly interested in how we transform groundwater into the high quality drinking water that flows from their taps,” said Iowa American Water President Randy Moore. “WATER FEST allows customers and the entire community to meet our professional team who works 24/7 to produce and deliver reliable, high quality water to about 30,000 people in our Clinton district. We encourage everyone to learn more about their drinking water and the complex process involved in getting it to their homes and businesses.”

The first-ever WATER FEST in Clinton County is designed to provide the community with an up-close, informative and fun view of how groundwater is transformed into high quality drinking water that meets all state and federal regulations. Besides guided plant tours and educational demonstrations by Iowa American Water staff, there will be plenty of activities, games and prizes for children along with free food. “It is the perfect back-to-school event because it will feel like a summer festival, and the kids will not even realize they are learning the entire time,” added Moore.

Visitors should turn onto Camanche Industrial Park Road from Highway 67 at the 1st Gateway Credit Union and follow the signs to designated parking areas. Water company personnel will be on hand to direct motorists.
