Public invited to tour water plant

The Patoka Lake Water and Sewer District welcomes the public to a tour of their water plant. Plant staff will lead guided tours on Thursday, Oct. 10. Registration for the free event begins at 5:45 p.m.

Naturalists from the Patoka Lake Nature Center will have a birds of prey presentation, and Julie Loehr, Middle Patoka River Watershed coordinator, will be on hand to share information about the local creeks, streams and lakes. Refreshments will be available, and attendees may also tour the UV building.

Space is limited on the tours, so reservations are limited to 60 people. The start time of the tours will be staggered, so all on the tour will be able to see and hear. Presentations will begin at 6 p.m., and the last tour will conclude by 8:15 p.m.

The Patoka Lake Water and Sewer District is located at 2647 N. State Road 545, Dubois. The event is free, but reservations are a must. Make reservations by contacting the Dubois County Soil and Water Conservation District at 812-482-1171, Ext. 3, or by e-mail at

The Behind the Scenes water plant tour is sponsored by the Patoka Lake Watershed Steering Committee, Middle Patoka River Watershed 319 Project and the Patoka Lake Regional Water and Sewer District.
