Southeast I-74 Water Study
The primary goal of the IFA’s Southeast I-74 Indiana Water Study is to improve the understanding of estimated future groundwater and surface water demand and availability within the public water utility sector so that a gap analysis can be conducted. The questions the study is looking to answer include: how much water is currently available? How much water will be needed for Public Water Supply in 2072? Do we have enough water to meet the 50-year Public Water Supply needs?
The study will examine the 50-year demand and supply availability in the “Driftwood”, “Flatrock-Haw”, and “Upper East Fork White” watersheds, which are primarily located in Hancock, Henry, Johnson, Shelby, Rush, Bartholomew, Jackson, and Decatur counties.
