Proposed Capital Improvements Projects
Proposed Wastewater Rate Increase

The City of Fishers has experienced tremendous growth leading to new commercial and residential connections to the city's wastewater system. Yet, despite rapid growth, the system's capacity has not been increased. While improvements have been made over the last several years, they have largely focused on maintenance, rather than increasing capacity due to limits in the wastewater utility fund. As demand continues to increase, capacity must also be increased to avoid costly system failures. 

Proposed Projects

The Fishers Department of Public Works Wastewater Utility has identified three critical capital improvement projects necessary to increase the capacity to convey the wastewater to the treatment plant—currently the most pressing need. The projects are:
  • The Hague Road to Allisonville Road Force Main project will replace the existing 18” pipe with a 30” pipe to increase the capabilities of the sewer system in the area and prevent any overflow of wastewater along Cumberland Rd.
  • The 106th Street Force Main project will replace the existing 18” pipe with a 30” pipe from Allisonville Road to Eller Road where it will run directly to the wastewater treatment plant. 
  • The Smock Creek Lift Station project includes a new pipeline to transport wastewater to an underground storage facility when needed and then to the wastewater treatment plant. The Smock Creek Lift Station is a busy facility in our sewer system and can be overwhelmed during heavy rain events. The new storage facility will ensure proper storage of wastewater if the sewer system is at capacity during any given time and protect Smock Creek waterway from unhealthy sewage overflows.
