Regency to address drinking water violations in Iowa City

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Regency of Iowa, Inc. has agreed to make improvements to a Johnson County mobile home park's drinking water system and to pay a $7,000 penalty for past violations.

The consent order stems from violations dating back to 2005 regarding the park's public drinking water supply when the DNR issued notices of violation due to high levels of bacteria, lead, copper and radium in the water and lack of public notice about those levels.  

In the consent order with the DNR, Regency agreed to improve its water treatment facility and pay a penalty for past violations. Click here to view the consent order.
