All are invited to Sioux Center’s new Wastewater Treatment Facility as Sioux Center Municipal Utilities will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, Sept. 23, from 3 to 7 p.m.

The event includes a ribbon cutting at 3 p.m. and an open house from 3-7 p.m. with an opportunity to take a self-guided tour of the new facility and enjoy refreshments.

“We’re excited to showcase the facility that’s been two years in the making that we and the people in the community can be proud of,” said Wastewater Department Head Zeke Ellis.

The event will be hosted at the Wastewater Treatment Facility at 1960 13th Ave SE in Sioux Center, and people are encouraged to use the west entrance when parking.

Construction for the new wastewater plant began in February 2018, and this new facility was planned to be finished in mid-2020. However, it finished ahead of schedule and began treating wastewater in November 2019.

The plant was designed to meet new, more stringent DNR standards and replace the community’s aging wastewater facility, built in 1981. The new facility treats the water to a higher standard and produces a cleaner effluent than the old treatment plant.

Sioux Center Municipal Utilities is excited for supporters and community members to celebrate this new facility that will serve the city as it continues to grow.

“We thank the community for supporting us through the planning and construction process,” said Utilities Manager Murray Hulstein, “This facility is a community resource that is built to be valuable for generations to come.”

The Sioux Center Wastewater Department serves 2,536 customers, treating an average of 1.7 million gallons of wastewater daily.
