      Project - Tenaska Westmoreland

      Approximately $18,000,000 spent by Tenaska for a pump station and extending a 24-inch water line 13 miles to its facility in South Huntingdon Township.

      For additional information about the Tenaska project, be sure to visit the MAWC page about the Indian Creek Filter Supply Plant improvements paid for by Tenaska, and these other links: here and here.

      The map below shows the route of the new 24-inch line that delivers water to the plant, and means that areas nearby now have access to a reliable drinking water supply. It also shows the hydrants that are bringing fire protection to the area as well.

      Status Update (chronological): 

      Tenaska began full scale power production in February 2019.
