LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — One of the highest points in the city of Lafayette will be receiving a booster station and underground storage reservoir.
The groundbreaking happened Monday afternoon at Murdock Park.
It will have the supplemental source of water for Lafayette which will consist of a six million gallon per day booster station and three million gallon reservoir.
It's essentially a backup pump facility for Columbian Park.
The project is being designed and overseen by Wessler Engineering.
The company's CEO said community members in Lafayette will notice huge benefits with this water station.
"In a large water usage or a power outage or a water outage this will provide that additional supply to them," said Marty Wessler.
This is one of the first steps of Lafayette's 25-year-water infrastructure plan.
The project is set to be completed by March of 2021.
Lafayette Parks and Rec are working on what to do with the green space.
