Chamber of Commerce Looking at Indiana's Water Resources

The Indiana Chamber of Commerce is taking a cold, hard look at water resources across the state. 

Chamber Spokesman Tom Schuman says much Central and Southern Indiana don't have strong enough resources to meet future growth needs.  Schuman says commercial and residential demands for water are continuing to increase and not all areas have adequate supply. 

He says it's an economic development and jobs issue. 

Schuman says it's an especially important issue for the I-69 corridor from Evansville to Indianapolis.  He says adequate water supply is crucial for companies to locate along that stretch of roadway. 

Schuman says business and civic leaders and state officials have all taken part in their Water Resource Study that will be released during the week of August 4th.  He says the study maps out strategies and recommendations for future water supply in Indiana.
