LaGrange County Regional Utility District

Fawn River

The Fawn River Crossing was developed to spur economic development in this critically important area.  The need for an industrial park with municipal water and sewer had become apparent to the county government.  The Fawn River Crossing project is a partnership of the LaGrange County Redevelopment Committee, County Commissioners, County Council, County Economic Development Corporation, and the LaGrange County Regional Utility District. 

The Economic Development Expansion Project and the City of Sturgis have partnered to make this project possible.

The project provides water, fire protection, and sewer for existing industry and businesses.  It also provides for the expansion of new industry and their utility needs.
