• Avon receives a boost from a new wastewater treatment plant

    July 14, 2011 No comments

    A $3.2 million investment in a wastewater treatment plant for Hendricks County is expected to help support growth and development in Avon.

    Aqua Indiana opened the expanded facility last month in Avon.

    Although the project was overseen by Hendricks County officials, it will benefit the town of Avon as well as unincorporated areas outside the town’s limits.

    The plant expansion means the county has sufficient wastewater infrastructure to supply the community for the next 15 to 18 years.

    The treatment plant is along U.S. 36 north of the CSX rail yard and between Meijer and Menards. The plant now has 2.45 million gallons per day capacity versus 1.55 million gallons of the old plant. Currently, the plant treats about 1.6 million gallons a day.

    Over the past couple decades, construction of wastewater infrastructure has helped pave the way for development of the U.S. 36 and Reagan Parkway corridors. In January Business Week magazine identified Avon as Indiana’s fastest-growing town and among the fastest-growing in the United States.
