The City of Anderson Begins Replacing Aging Infrastructure

The City of Anderson Begins Replacing Aging Infrastructure

ANDERSON – IN – Mayor Thomas Broderick, Jr. and the City of Anderson will hold a groundbreaking for the new Lafayette Treatment Plant on Friday, November 3rd at 9:00 a.m. at 1331 West 300 North. In making the announcement, Mayor Broderick stated, “This will mark the beginning of renewal of an aging infrastructure that has served the city’s drinking water customers for almost 50 years. This new $9.3 million dollar plant will increase our water capacity and provide the necessary infrastructure that will allow the city to continue to provide safe and plentiful drinking water.”  The new plant will replace the present aging plant that was built in 1968.

            “I am proud of our city water department employees, led by Anderson Water Superintendent Neal McKee. These employees  work hard every day to operate and maintain the Lafayette and Wheeler Treatment Plants in order to provide safe, clean drinking water for the citizens and customers of the Anderson Water Department,” Mayor Broderick stated.

The existing Lafayette Treatment Plant has a capacity of 8 million gallons per day. The new plant will have a capacity of 10 million gallons per day, expandable to 12 million gallons per day. The treatment process will be the same, iron and manganese removal through aeration and filtration along with disinfection. There will also be an additional 600,000 gallons of storage that the existing plant does not have. Construction of the new plant is expected to take between 12 and 18 months to complete.

 

“The City of Anderson is committed to providing safe and reliable water service to the citizens of Anderson. We work 24/7 to maintain and renew our critical water infrastructure. A healthy water infrastructure is essential in protecting public health, fighting fires, supporting our local businesses, and caring for our environment”, stated Superintendent McKee.

The Anderson Board of Public Works awarded the contract to construct the plant to F.A. Willhem Construction Company. Superintendent McKee explained that in addition to the new plant the city would be upgrading the Wheeler Plant and replacing four of the well fields in the Lafayette well field.
