Central Indiana Water Study



The IFA hosted a public kick-off meeting for the Central Indiana Water Study on April 29th, 2019.  The presentation and agenda can be found in the Resources section below.

Central Indiana Water Study

Central Indiana is the second regional area to be studied on account of the progress already made by the Central Indiana Drinking Water Collaborative (“Collaborative”); a group of water utilities that previously organized themselves and conduct regular meetings. The study area for the Central Indiana Water Study assumes the same boundaries as the Collaborative, which are: Boone, Hamilton, Hancock, Hendricks, Johnson, Madison, Marion, Morgan, and Shelby counties.

The primary goal of the IFA’s Central Indiana Water Study, determined in partnership with the Collaborative, is to provide the State and affected water utilities a better understanding of the supply and demand of water resources in the Central Indiana region.


The Central Indiana Water Study will consist of five separate phases:      



Phase I: Regional Demand

Phase II: Regional Supply

            Phase III: Water Availability Modeling and Optimization

Phase IV: Infrastructure and Cost Analysis             

Phase V: Public Education and Outreach
