[Courtesy: IndyStar]: Ever since the state announced plans to pipe millions of gallons of water across Central Indiana for a new technology and development district, residents and elected officials have raised questions and concerns.
Will it deplete local water supplies?
Is the plan sustainable in the long term?
Earlier this year, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation began working with water consulting firm Intera to study the aquifer along the Wabash River near Lafayette. Meanwhile, working off historic data, the agency signed a $10 million contract for the pipeline’s design.
After months of anticipation, IEDC released last month the preliminary results of the study. The final report is not expected until the end of the year.
As for the LEAP pipeline project, here’s what you need to know about the study.
