INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Citizens Energy Group says it will invest nearly $114 million in its water system over the next two years.

Officials say the plan aims to reduce water main breaks, expand sources of supply and improve water treatment plants.

The projects will be funded by a recent water rate increase that raised the average residential customer bill less than $1 per month.

Projects in the plan include a new ground water treatment plant near Morse Reservoir; stabilization of the banks of the historic Central Canal; a booster station to improve water pressure on the northwest side; and several large water main replacement projects. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
