Indiana American Water Cuts Ribbon for New $22 Million Water Treatment Facility in Mooresville, Ind.

MOORESVILLE, Ind. (October 21, 2022) – Indiana American Water Company, a subsidiary of American Water Company (NYSE: AWK), today joined local and state officials, community leaders and project partners at a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate completion of a new $22 million water treatment facility in Mooresville, Ind. The project improves water quality by filtering iron and manganese from the groundwater source, and enhances safety, efficiency, and system reliability.

“The lifeblood of any great community is high-quality drinking water,” said Indiana American Water President Matt Prine. “Mooresville has seen significant growth over the last several decades, and this investment will enable us to continue to meet those needs and significantly enhance water quality for our customers.”

The new treatment facility added filtration to remove iron and manganese from the area’s groundwater source, replaced an existing backup power generator and added a second generator to provide backup power capability for all of its wellfield pumps, added new pumping and disinfection equipment, and added a 500,000-gallon finished water storage tank. The facility will also recycle most of the water used to backwash filters on a regular basis.

The new treatment plant can provide approximately 3 million gallons of filtered drinking water and was constructed to be easily expanded as future demand requires additional capacity.

“These improvements are an important part of Mooresville’s plans to ensure that we offer a high quality of life for our residents and to allow us to continue to attract new residents and businesses to the area,” said Mooresville Town Council President Tom Warthen. “This project helps to assure the quantity, quality, and consistency of the water that Indiana American Water provides to their customers in the Civil Town of Mooresville. We appreciate their continued investment in our water infrastructure and the role they play in our community.”

Indiana American Water has made additional significant investments in its Mooresville water infrastructure since purchasing the system in 2000, including more than $9 million in the last decade alone. Most recently during 2021, the company invested more than $1 million to relocate or replace more than a mile of water mains and approximately $700,000 to construct a new well that has recently been placed in service.

The treatment plant project utilized a design-build concept, bringing together construction and design professionals in a collaborative effort to enhance the quality of the finished project and to more effectively control project costs. The design team of Gannett Fleming and Reynolds Construction was responsible for designing and constructing the new treatment facility.

Indiana American Water’s Mooresville district serves approximately 4,000 customers or a population of more than 10,000 residents in the area.
