Clean Water - Sustainable Dubuque

Clean Water

Sustainable Dubuque is a community that values water as a source of life and seeks to preserve and manage it in all forms.



I want to...

 Learn about the City of Dubuque Water Treatment Plant

The Dubuque Water Department  plant is dedicated to producing and delivering drinking water that is in compliance with all state and federal drinking water standards. 

 Visit the National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium

The National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium is accredited by the American Association of Museums — a distinction held by only 9 percent of American museums, was named an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution in August 2002, and was accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums in 2009. 

 Manage Rain Water On My Property

Rain barrels and rain gardens are both excellent ways to capture and beneficially use rain water on your property. 

The City of Dubuque has funds available to assist and collaborate with residents and non-profits in building a rain garden.  Contact Dean Mattoon in the Engineering Department at 563-589-4202 or email for more information.
