Indiana American Water Co. has broken ground on a $22 million water treatment facility in Mooresville. The project includes construction of a new facility that the company says will improve water quality, safety, efficiency, and system reliability.
The company says the facility will add filtration to remove iron and manganese from the area’s groundwater source, replace the existing backup power generator, add new pumping and disinfection equipment, as well as a 500,000-gallon finished water storage tank. Additionally, the facility will also recycle most of the water used to backwash filters.
“The lifeblood of any great community is high-quality drinking water,” said Indiana American Water President Matt Prine. “Mooresville has seen significant growth over the last several decades, and this investment will enable us to continue to meet those needs and significantly enhance water quality for our customers.”
The company says the plant will be able to provide about 3 million gallons of filtered drinking water and is being constructed so it can be easily expanded as future demand requires additional capacity.
According to Indiana American Water Co., the facility will be placed in service next spring with final completion of the project by September 2022.
