DARLINGTON — Aqua Indiana officials joined Darlington town council members Tuesday at a fire hydrant opening to celebrate the completion of a major water main construction project that will improve service reliability and water flow throughout the 1,000-resident Montgomery County community. The event took place on South Madison Street in Darlington.
Aqua installed nearly 5,000 feet of new water mains and five new fire hydrants that will enhance fire protection in the southeastern part of the town. The project represents $225,000 of the nearly $750,000 Aqua has invested since acquiring the Darlington water system in 2007.
“Aqua is proud of the investments we’ve made in Darlington and for the partnership we have with the town,” said Aqua Indiana president Tom Bruns. “The completion of this improvement project is another example of our company’s commitment to working with smaller communities in Indiana to assure the reliable delivery of safe water to our customers.”
