Holland considers options for water system upgradesApril 20, 2017
From Local Sources
HOLLAND — Members of the Holland Town Council met with Stendal-area water customers Wednesday at the Lockhart Township Community Center to go over options for upcoming water system upgrades.
A major part of any project will be the water tower servicing Stendal, a community that has been part of the water system for 40 years.
President Tom Thacker told the 15 people attending Wednesday that Holland could likely qualify for a grant from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs for water upgrades that could range from $4.3 million to $6.2 million.
Holland has estimates for rehabilitating an existing 20,000-gallon Stendal tower ($180,000) and for building a new, 50,000-gallon tower ($465,000).
Upgrades will likely include some line replacements (going from 4-inch to 6-inch mains) and swapping out old meters that are likely under-recording actual gallons used.
Thacker said one of the next action steps would be to meet with Midwestern Engineers of Loogootee and the Indiana 15 Regional Planning Commission to discuss which options will fit into the water system’s future.
Thacker said four individuals at Wednesday’s meeting volunteered to be on a Stendal-area advisory board, which will help Holland keep everyone in tune with upcoming discussions and decisions.
