DELPHI, Ind. (WLFI)—Water rates could be on the rise for people within Delphi city limits. The community gathered Tuesday evening to discuss their options for a new water system.

Tuesday's meeting was hosted by various city officials, including Delphi Mayor Shane Evans.

The city wants to utilize new infrastructure or update the existing water system. Water levels have steadily been decreasing, which means deeper wells are needed to reach water tables within the current aquifer.

The local officials presented various options to the public, including working with local businesses like U.S. Aggregates. Mayor Evans said this is the best time for the city to make improvements.

"We need to do the work now so that it will cost us less money in the future. If we allow things to degrade where we don't do maintenance on them, it could ultimately cost us more in the future. So, we want to weigh our options there as well," explained Evans.
