Central Indiana Water Study

The primary goal of the IFA’s Central Indiana Water Study 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.

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.

A public meeting was held August 9, 2021 to present the final results of the study.  Press release for the public meeting.
