Water Utility


The Anderson Water Utility is one of the larger municipal water utilities in the State of Indiana that procures from groundwater sources, processes, and distributes to all classes of customers through 21,500 individual customer service connections.

This utility serves the public with two separate well fields and treatment plants to create a greater level of reliability for this highly important aspect of infrastructure. It is important to note that all raw water sources are groundwater and therefore have a much more consistent composition when compared with the fluctuating characteristics associated with surface sources. We are already in the process of expanding our surplus groundwater supply to become even more drought resistant and for any potential industrial candidates.

Each treatment plant hosts individual auxiliary power, with basic treatment processes such as aeration, sand filtration, fluoridation, chlorination, and the addition of polyphosphates / orthophosphates. Water is then delivered to the 320 linear mile distribution system and its seven elevated storage tanks with a total storage capacity of 6.5 MG. The grid network multi-directional flow distribution system can accommodate large industrial users in a wide range of locations throughout the city.

With some of the more competitive rates in the State of Indiana, this utility has the excess capacity to become even more of an attraction to various perspective commercial and industrial users.
