Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness

In recognition of our wellness culture, the Wellness Council of America and the State of Iowa, presented DMWW a Gold Level Well Workplace Award.  The Well Workplace awards recognize companies that have implemented and demonstrated measurable success in employee wellness programming. Areas of focus include smoking cessation, nutrition, physical fitness, self-care, and stress management.

We have provided land for employees to plant a vegetable garden to assist in healthy eating.  We also provide bicycles for employees to ride between the treatment plant and the administrative building so they can exercise on their way to meetings. 

DMWW has a cross departmental team, Health Improvement Planning Team (HIP), to sponsor activites to help employees with health and wellness.  Some of the activities are:

  • Annual health screens
  • Wellness reimbursement
  • Cooking classes with a registered dietician
  • On-site low impact work-outs
  • Education programs
  • Nutrition/weight management program
  • Exercise events
  • Maps of walking routes in Water Works Park
