Utilities

Water & Sewer Department

Mission: To provide service 24/7 for water and sewer services.

The city water department began providing water in the early 1930s and then drilled several wells within the city and used these wells until new ones were drilled in 1978 and 1986, which are still being used. The old wells in town were all plugged in 1998. In 2004, water improvements were completed which included replacing several old fire hydrants, looping in several dead end water mains, and installing a pressure booster pump station to increase water pressure to customers south of the water tank. The city extended water mains east on Highway 30 in 2010 and continue exploring ways to improve the City of Kimball's water system.

The Water/Sewer Department has three employees.  Supervisor, Carson Sisk is licensed as required by the State of Nebraska Health and Human Services and attends certification classes in pursuit of providing professional employees.  Carson, along with operators Casey Hottel and Lance Winters, are in charge of the water distribution and water transmission mains that equal approximately 39 miles of pipe that are used to deliver over 200 million gallons of water for the year of 2013.

On the Sewer side this department is also responsible for maintaining the sewer collection system which has approximately 30 miles of pipe in the system, and the department maintains sixty sewer mains monthly, which equates to four and a half miles of maintenance per month.  This four and a half miles of maintenance does not include customer requests or plumber requests for sewer line cleaning.

The same three employees are responsible for opening and closing of the municipal swimming pool and any maintenance required during the swimming season..
