Needs Assessment Study Mishawaka Utilities Water Division

Mishawaka, Indiana

Since the 1980s, DLZ has worked with Mishawaka on Water System Improvements. In 1998, 2005, and 2014, DLZ was retained by the City of Mishawaka to prepare an engineering feasibility study (subsequent updated) to identify water distribution system improvements, water supply, water treatment controls modernization, and facilities expansion. The intent of the water distribution phase of this project was to evaluate the existing system for maximum day demand, fire flow conditions, and future water demands. Distribution, supply, and treatment system improvements were identified and prioritized. The proposed recommendations were modeled using WaterCAD to identify the potential benefits.

The Needs Assessment and subsequent updates also reviewed the Mishawaka water treatment plants and supply. The existing water treatment plants were evaluated, and necessary renovations were determined.

In 2018, DLZ assisted the City in submitting the current Needs Assessment to the State Revolving Fund Loan Program. DLZ has designed three water treatment plants, five water storage facilities, four booster stations, and various water mains.
