Reservoir group conducting survey

Public input sought starting on Monday

(Continued)

“This project has the potential to supply an additional water resource to the greater central Indiana area as well as development to the Madison/Delaware county area,” Sparks said. “We have been encouraged with the community support of this project, and are seeking a community conversation with this survey in preparation for public forums later this spring.”

Last year the State of Indiana awarded, through its Revolving Fund loan program, a $600,000 grant to the CED. This grant is being used to complete a Phase II feasibility study of the proposed Mounds Lake.

Components of this study include environmental issues, financials, engineering studies and community impact. When these feasibility studies are completed, the CED has said it will release results to the public.

Survey questions about project These are the survey questions concerning the proposed Mounds Lake Reservoir from the Corporation for Economic Development. Survey can be taken at www.moundslake.com starting Monday. The first five answers range from strongly agree to strongly disagree: • I support the Mounds Lake Project • I am kept up to date on the Mounds Lake Project • I know how Phase II of the Mounds Lake Project works • Information about Mounds Lake is easy to find • I would attend a public forum about Mounds Lake development The next questions have multiple answers: • What do you think is beneficial about the project? • What concerns you about the project? • Where do you get information about the project? • Would you like to be part of a community feedback panel?
