The Keota city council, mayor and city employees will go door to door to ask residents to complete a survey this month. The city was recently granted a waste water permit by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, but will need to add on to their lagoon system to remain compliant. Keota’s current system fails to meet the Iowa DNR’s standards on ammonia, chloride and e. coli levels. The results of the survey will determine if they qualify for a Community Development Block Grant, which will lower the cost of the upgrade and reduce impending rate increases. The LMI (low-to-moderate) income surveys will be conducted through the 22nd of this month.
