The Hidden Lake water treatment facility was part of a $25 million initiative that greatly enhanced water quality by removing iron and manganese through new treatment processes, improved system reliability, and increased capacity that enabled Indiana American Water to continue to meet the growing water and fire protection service needs of the community and area customers. The project included construction of a 6 MGD water treatment plant, including two aerators, a 1 million gallon finished water reservoir, four pressure filters, four distribution pumps, two backwash pumps and all related appurtenances. The project also included the construction of a 12,000-square-foot administrative and laboratory area and separate maintenance facility. Through the design-build process, the project was value-engineered to minimize the cost of the project while maintaining the highest performance standards.
