Water, sewer district to host open houseSeptember 9, 2019
From Local Sources
FERDINAND — The Patoka Lake Regional Water and Sewer District will celebrate its 45th anniversary, and the completion of its recent history project with an open house reception from 2 to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, at the Ferdinand Community Center. The public is invited to the event.
Chartered in 1974, the utility was established to effectively utilize the Patoka Lake Reservoir in providing safe and reliable drinking water to rural Southern Indiana. Now serving a nine-county footprint with thousands of customers, the district is a true success story in regional planning for the delivery of critical infrastructure and quality drinking water.
To preserve the unique stories and to recognize the local leadership that turned an idea into a reality, the district recently commissioned a history project. The book, “Those Kids Deserve Water Too,” was written by David Dahl, a local author and the retired president of Loogootee-based Midwestern Engineers Inc. The book is now available on Amazon and will also be available at the open house event.
Dahl and others will give brief remarks at the event, beginning at 3 p.m. Mike Phillips, local attorney and former Indiana Speaker of the House, will serve as the master of ceremonies. All current and past board members of the district will be recognized. Invitations to dignitaries, community leaders, and partner utilities have been sent.
To find out more about the event or to RSVP, call 812.295.2800.
