The City of Fort Wayne will host Indiana'€™s Water Pollution Control Board on Wednesday, June 13.

City officials will take board members on a tour of several sites around the City related to water quality. Board members will tour the Water Filtration Plant, which has over $24 million in improvements planned. Additional locations will include the Water Pollution Control Plant, which is in the middle of a $32 million project to increase sewage capacity. Other highlights will include the Camp Scott site in southeast Fort Wayne, a $20 million project to improve stormwater quality and reduce basement backups.

At 1:30 p.m., the board will have an official monthly meeting in the Omni Room of the City-County Building. The board'€™s agenda can be found on the Indiana Department of Environmental Management website,

“We look forward to hosting the Water Pollution Control Board,” said Greg Meszaros, Director of Public Works and City Utilities. “This is a unique opportunity for Fort Wayne to demonstrate how proactive water, sewer and stormwater projects can have a positive impact on a community.”
