Clean Water IS Essential

While many of us have modified our behavior to adapt to Social Distancing and Stay-At-Home Orders, Indiana’s dedicated Utility Staff remain committed to providing clean drinking water and sanitation. Times like these remind us of the importance of our utilities and those that represent them. Thank you from all of us at Commonwealth.

We remain dedicated to meeting your needs, and our Regulatory Compliance Team has been tracking State and Federal responses to COVID-19. Below you will find links to the following resources:
