(AP) — A proposal to build a 2,000-acre reservoir about 50 miles northeast
of Indianapolis would face numerous reviews by regulatory agencies before
the project could move forward.
Bulletin reports Indiana's Department of Homeland Security and several
divisions of the state Department of Natural Resources would have to
review the proposal, as would the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the
Federal Emergency Management Agency.
elected leaders in Madison and Delaware counties and the communities of
Anderson, Chesterfield and Daleville would have to agree to form a
10-member Mounds Lake Commission to study the idea.
that would involve building a 2,500-foot-long earthen dam along the White
River at a cost of between $300 million and $400 million.
