Facility Name:  Walker Water Works                     PWSID#: 5792059

Date:  9-8-17


Our water system violated a drinking water standard(s) over the past year. Even though these were not emergencies, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened and what we did to correct these situations.

We, the Walker Water Works Public Water Supply are required to monitor your drinking water for specific contaminants on a regular basis. Results of regular monitoring are an indicator of whether or not our drinking water meets health standards. During July 2017 we did not monitor or test one sample for coliform bacteria and therefore cannot be sure of the quality of our drinking water during that time.

What should I do?

There is nothing you need to do at this time.

What Happened? What is being done? 

We did not test a sample during the month of July 2017.  A sample was taken and tested negative on August 2, 2017. During the tenure of our current public works technician (December 10, 2013 to present), Walker Water Works has never had a monthly sample test positive for coliform bacteria. 

For more information, please contact Kevin Shoop at 319-310-6685. 

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.





Whenever a snow emergency is declared, parking on the City streets shall be permitted      

on the even sides of the street when the snow emergency is declared to start on an even

numbered day, and on odd numbered sides of the street, when the snow emergency is

declared to start on an odd numbered day.  This shall continue from proclamation through

the duration of the snow or ice storm and a 48-hour period after cessation of the storm. 

While under said snow emergency parking shall adhere to even sides of the street on

even numbered days and odd sides of the street on odd numbered days, unless the snow

has been removed or plowed from said street, alley or parking area.  Vehicles violating

this snow emergency section shall be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

In December of 2014, the city received a grant from the Linn County Fund through the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation for this book drop box for the Center Point Library.  Books are returned to the library weekly.
