Keokuk Water Works Statement on COVID-19

Waterworks to waive March Penalties & Late Fees

Greetings Citizens of Keokuk,

The Keokuk Municipal Waterworks is closely following the guidance from the CDC and also any state government recommendations. The situation with the virus is constantly changing and we take preparation measures seriously. Below is a list of actions to be taken by the Waterworks in response:

  1. Closing of the front lobby to encourage social distancing
  2. Canceling late penalties and late fees for the month of March.
  3. Canceling shut offs and meter changes, but we highly encourage “on time” payments.
  4. We know the current situation will pose financial hardships and we will be happy to answer any questions, preferably by phone.

Today’s primary concern is the health and safety of our community and our Waterworks family. The drive through remains open for payments, but we ask that you use the on-line payment option or use our drop box located at the front door.

Keokuk Waterworks finished drinking water remains safe. The COVID-19 virus, has not been detected in drinking water. EPA recommends that Americans continue to use and drink tap water as usual. 

Sincerely,

Andrea Rogers

General Manager
