A report by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce claims that Indiana needs more money and a single state-level planning entity to better manage its water supplies.
Experts that prepared the report say that unlike some water-hungry states west of the Mississippi River, Indiana's water is plentiful.
The main problem is that there is a lack of detailed data on the states aquifers' reserves.
So even though we have a lot of water we really don’t know just how much.
The Chamber says that knowing the amount of our water reserves could impact water intensive business plans to relocate here.
The chamber plans on asking state lawmakers next year to include up to $10 million in each of the next two years to finance additional testing and research.
