Workers put the finishing touches on the new Whitestown, IN, wastewater treatment plant last month. The new plant was designed to give the southeast Indiana town capacity to accommodate the town's growth for the next 20 years.
An article about Whitestown's new wastewater treatment plant was featured in the December 2, 2015, issue of The Lebanon Reporter, a newspaper based in Boone County, IN. (Note: Subscription may be required for viewing -- PDF copy.)
Designed by GRW, the Indiana town's new wastewater treatment plant is able to process 1.7/6.0 MGD average/peak (expandable to 2.3/8.0 MGD) of flow per day. The original treatment plant could process 225,000 gallons per day.
Whitestown has been a GRW client for more than 8 years – and is one of the fastest growing communities in the greater Indianapolis area.
According to the article, Whitestown's Public Works Director Jason Lawson, and Plant Director Danny Powers, agreed the new plant will accommodate the town's rapid growth for the next 20 years.
The $25 million project is being funded in part through the State Revolving Fund loan program administered by the Indiana Finance Authority.
