ANDERSON, Ind. (Herald Bulletin) - The proposed Mounds Lake Reservoir in Anderson has been met with a positive initial response from officials, but has caused some uncertainty for members of the animal population. The reservoir could impact the endangered Indiana bat.
The land where the reservoir would be constructed is home to a list of state and federally listed endangered species, including the Indiana bat, two species of mollusk, three species of dragonfly and a number of plant species, 24-Hour News 8's news partner The Herald Bulletin reports.
The city will continue to make assessments to determine what impacts the reservoir would have. Economic development officials say a project of this size would affect the ecosystem in some capacity.
Officials would possibly consider relocating some species elsewhere.
