The town of Middletown is mulling an estimated $2.7 million water treatment facility. The Courier-Times in New Castle reports the current plant was built in the mid-1950s and is one of the oldest in the state. If all approvals are met, construction could be complete by late 2016.

Indianapolis-based Butler Fairman Seufert Inc. presented a preliminary engineering report last week to the council.

The company says the new plant would be able to process 400,000 gallons per day.
