ANDERSON, Ind. -- The City of Anderson announced Friday that it will spend $9.3 million to build a new water treatment plant, which will increase the city's water capacity and improve infrastructure.
City officials say the Lafayette Treatment Plant will be constructed at 1331 West 300 North and will replace the aging water treatment plant that was built in 1968.
Mayor Thomas Broderick's office says the existing plant has a capacity of eight million gallons per day. The new state-of-the-art facility will hold up to 12 million gallons per day.
In a written statement, Anderson Water Superintendent Neal McKee said, "A healthy water infrastructure is essential in protecting public health, fighting fires, supporting our local businesses, and caring for our environment.”
The new Lafayette Treatment Plant should be up and running by mid-2019.
