City Utilities hosting sessions for Aqua Indiana customers

– City Utilities will host information sessions for residents in southwest Fort Wayne to get an update about their transition from Aqua Indiana water to City Utilities water.

The transition to city water for Aqua customers could start in the fall, a process that will take about five months to complete.
