Indianapolis, Indiana

USFilter, the US subsidiary of Veolia (formerly Vivendi Environnement), was awarded a ~$1 billion 20-year contract to operate the Indianapolis water system in 2002, the largest water privatization contract in the United States. USFilter labels Indianapolis as their great success stories, yet the company’s tendency to cut corners has caught the attention of local environmental, community and labor groups. Public Citizen is now partnering with these groups to ask Mayor Bart Peterson to cancel the contract with USFilter and put control of the water company in the public trust.

But that means we depend on the generosity of concerned citizens like you for the resources to fight on behalf of the public interest. If you would like to help us in our fight, click here.
