Initial results in a multi-phase water study show “abundant water availability” in the Wabash Alluvial Aquifer, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. (IEDC) announced Thursday.

Officials hope to pipe 100 million gallons of water daily 35 miles from the aquifer to a  high-tech park planned in Boone County: the LEAP Lebanon Innovation District.

The analysis found that the Wabash River’s average flow rate is 2 billion gallons of water daily, and that the aquifer is both deeper and wider than indicated in previous studies, according to the release.
