Iowa American Water utilizes conventional flocculation/sedimentation treatment processes as well as SuperPulsator technology and has a 30-million gallon daily capacity. On average, about 16 million gallons of water are delivered each day to customers in Bettendorf, Davenport, LeClaire, Panorama Park and Riverdale.
