Indiana American Water Completes $18 Million Noblesville Water Treatment Plant Project
(NOBLESVILLE, Ind., August 21, 2020) – Indiana American Water, a subsidiary of American Water Company (NYSE: AWK), today joined Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen and a handful of community leaders at a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark completion of a project that adds additional capacity and water treatment capabilities to the company’s Noblesville, Ind. system.
“Noblesville is a great place to live, work and raise a family and is consistently one of the fastest growing communities in Indiana,” said Indiana American Water President Matt Prine. “We are committed to supporting that growth now and in the future through investments like this new water treatment facility. In the last decade alone, we have invested more than $50 million to enhance our water infrastructure and meet the needs of a growing Noblesville.”
The project, which cost more than $18 million, included construction of a new water treatment facility, adding a second well to the existing wellfield at this location, and construction of a one-million-gallon ground storage tank. The plant design also allows the company to recycle nearly all of the water used to backwash the filters at this location. The plant is able to provide approximately three million gallons of filtered drinking water and was constructed so it can be easily expanded as future demand requires additional capacity. The new facility is one of three treatment plants serving the Noblesville community.
According to Noblesville Mayor Chris Jensen, “Indiana American Water has been a great partner with the City of Noblesville over the years. We appreciate their proactive approach and the significant investments in water infrastructure that help us to grow and thrive as a community.”
Indiana American Water has invested more than $50 million over the last decade in its water infrastructure in Hamilton County, including construction of a new elevated storage tank near Promise Road and 186th Street, installing/upgrading several large-diameter transmission mains, and investing more than $16 million to install new water mains, fire hydrants, service lines and water meters.
Indiana American Water serves nearly 17,000 customers in the area, or a population of more than 45,000. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Noblesville’s population grew by more than 24 percent during the last decade.
