Kendallville Wastewater Treatment Plant Groundbreaking

Kendallville Mayor W. SuzAnne Handshoe and Wastewater Superintendent Mark Schultz recently hosted a ceremony for the City of Kendallville’s Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Improvements Project.  Honored guests in attendance were Senator Susan Glick, Indiana District 13, Representative David Ober, Indiana District 82, Jim Dazey, City Council President/BOW President, Eric Walsh, Umbaugh & Associates, and Mick Jackson, James S. Jackson CO, LLC.  Mayor Handshoe declared this the most important project in 35 years for Kendallville.  The City has probably one of the last trickling filters in the state.  All 3 trickling filters will be demolished as well as the Bio Tower.  Triad engineers noted that the improved plant will allow for the treatment of future flows and loadings that new businesses and industry may bring to the City.
