The second phase of a $23 million project to upgrade Muncie’s water treatment plant is in full swing.
The new facility will replace the current White River intake and raw water pumping facilities, allowing the city to meet new, more stringent water quality standards, says Inside Indiana Business.
“These investments in our treatment facility are a major step forward in delivering on our commitment to quality water service to our Muncie customers,” said Indiana American Water President Deborah Dewey, charged with overseeing the project. “A quality, reliable water supply helped fuel Muncie’s economy in the last century and with the improvements we’re announcing today, we’re well-positioned to continue and enhance that tradition of quality for our next generation of customers.”
The project is expected to wrap up by the end of 2019.
