City of Carmel Utilities
The Carmel Utility water system was started in 1929 with a single well and limited distribution. As the system grew, additional wells were added starting in 1946 through 2007. Today the Carmel utility water system operates 20 well sites providing water to three treatment facilities with a capacity of 22 million gallons a day. A fourth treatment facility is scheduled to come online in 2012, increasing capacity to 40 million gallons a day.
Through expansion and acquisitions in 2002 and 2006, Carmel Utilities serves over 27,000 customers distributing water through more than 975 miles of water main.
Carmel Utilities award winning wastewater treatment facility and sewer department provides service to nearly 70 percent of the utility’s water customers, and processes a portion of the waste water for Clay Regional Sewer District and the City of Westfield.
