Logansport Utilities announced in September 2022 that it has been awarded millions of dollars in grant money to help replace the city’s water service lines.
The State Revolving Fund (SRF) Loan Program provides grant money and low-interest loans to Indiana communities for projects that improve wastewater and drinking water infrastructure.
In Logansport Utilities’ continuous mission to bring safe, clean, and reliable drinking water to Logansport residents, the company applied for $24 million dollars to replace 4,500 service lines in the city. The SRF has agreed to award and fund 80% of the company’s requested funds with grant money, which will not have to be repaid. The request will be broken down into thirds, with $8 million dollars to be requested and be awarded each year for three years. In 2022, Logansport Utilities will obtain $6.4 million dollars in grant money and borrow the additional $1.6 million dollars with 0% interest on a 30-year loan from the SRF. The same process is planned for the next two years.
Once the 4,500 service lines are replaced over the next few years, residents can expect improved quality water and higher water pressure in their homes and businesses.
In March 2023, Logansport Utilities announced that the 129-year-old utility company is mailing an instructional letter to thousands of Logansport residents and businesses, largely in the oldest infrastructure parts of the city, asking them to identify their water service line that enters their property and to then send back the information.
