ACRWSD Ground Breaking – Yoder, IN
On October 8, 2015, the Allen County Regional Water and Sewer District (ACRWSD) hosted a Ground Breaking Ceremony at St. Aloysius Church in Yoder, IN. This marked the beginning of construction for new Sanitary Sewer Collection System Improvements projects for 9 Allen County areas. These projects will provide more than 500 homes with public health and environmental benefits at minimal cost.
ACRWSD works to provide utility services to unincorporated areas of Allen County that are not served by other utility providers. The District has partnered with the cities of Fort Wayne, New Haven, Woodburn and the privately owned sewer utility Aqua Indiana.
“It would be unaffordable to provide service in most all of our project areas if we were to install sewage collection and treatment facilities on our own” explained Kenny Neumeister, Executive Director of ACRWSD. “These community partners recognize the regional benefit of cleaner rivers, streams, and ditches – even if it is outside their normal boundaries.”
Furthermore, the State of Indiana, through the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) and their State Revolving Fund (SRF), provided millions of dollars in grant funding, low-interest loans and no-interest loans to help keep customer rates low.
“We are thankful to our State, County, and City Officials for their ongoing assistance with our Mission.” – Ric Zehr, President, ACRWSD
