Technical Tours

New for WWETT Show 2018

The WWETT Show is pleased to be working with Citizen's Energy Group to offer Technical Tours to show attendees.

Citizens Energy Group is a broad-based utility service company that provides natural gas, thermal energy, water, and wastewater services to about 800,000 people and thousands of businesses in the Indianapolis area.

Two tours are being offered. One is the DigIndy Tunnel Tour. Citizen’s Energy Group is constructing one of the largest infrastructure projects in the State of Indiana. They have already mined the entire first phase of the Dig Indy tunnel system, equaling over 9 miles. The tunnel is approximately 250 feet below the surface of Indianapolis, with a bore diameter of 20 feet, with a finished diameter of 18 feet, and will be 28 miles long when completed in 2025.

The new tour will offer a view of the second phase of the project that has recently started. You will be lowered 250 feet below the surface in a man cage with other attendees, and then brought back to the surface. An engineer from Citizen’s Energy Group will provide a verbal presentation on the project details. 

The man cage will hold groups of 13-15.  Citizens Energy Group is not allowing attendees to exit the man cage in the tunnel for safety reasons. All attendees must wear steel toed boots, hard hats and safety glasses.  Hard hats and glasses will be provided. All tour attendees will be required to sign a waiver form.   

Note of caution:  if you tend to be claustrophobic, this tour might not be a good idea for you.  

The other tour is to the Secondary Treatment System and Control Room at the Belmont Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Plant has a capacity of 300 million gallons per day (MGD) and accepts flows from a combined sewer system.  The secondary treatment system includes an air nitrification system installed in 2012 and an oxygen nitrification system that was constructed in 1967. The oxygen nitrification system was converted to an air nitrification system in 2012 and expanded to handle wet weather flows of 300 MGD.
