Responsibilities

The Water Division provides continuous high quality, economical water, and services to the citizens of Moline. Using the Mississippi River as our source, we treat, pump, and meter water to over 17,000 homes and businesses. We are responsible for the operation, maintenance, and upgrade of the city’s extensive water supply system. Moline’s drinking water supply system must function reliably on a 24/7 basis to protect the public health and support our standard of living and local economy, as our community requires more than 5 million gallons of water on an average day.

Public Water Supply System

Moline’s public water supply system is operated as a public utility enterprise fund. No tax dollars, in any form, are used to fund Moline’s public water supply system. All funds, revenues and expenditures associated with its operation are segregated from other city finances. The current annual Water Division budget is about $8.8 million dollars. The revenue that supports this budget is derived solely from the fees charged for water and water-related services.

Detailed information regarding your City Utility Bill and payments can be found on the Water Service page.
