Last October the Indiana Department of Environmental Management declared the City of Greencastle water supply under the influence of surface water.
Now Greencastle is going to have to fix that.
To comply with IDEM regulations the city will have to spend over $2,5 million.
That will mean a rate hike.
The issue will next go before the Board of Public Works and Safety, which will study rate hike options and make a recommendation to the Council at a later date.
According to that order, the City of Greencastle has 18 months -- as of last Oct. 7 -- to comply with the IDEM regulations.
