The City of Batesville

The city of Batesville received $10 million of ARRA funds, $6.3 million of which were principal forgiveness, to replace the existing wastewater mains (to the treatment facility) with a 3,100 linear foot gravity sewer. 1,700 linear feet is constructed as a 54 inch tunnel under the local golf course. Batesville previously transported all sanitary wastewater via a pumping station and two force mains, the larger of which is often submerged in the White River. The project saves 62 percent of energy, or about 700,000 kW hours/year over the minimum 40 year life of the tunnel.
