“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.
