The water source for the Honeysuckle system is groundwater wells. Because Honeysuckle is a ground water system, there is a designated wellhead protection area that encompasses all of the land within 3,000 feet of the groundwater wells.
Property owners served by the Honeysuckle system and those in the wellhead protection area are encouraged to take steps to protect drinking water from contamination. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management and City Utilities have developed fact sheets and other material to help property owners better understand sources of groundwater contamination and protect the aquifer that provides water for the Honeysuckle system.

City Utilities has established a Local Planning Team that will conduct activities related to wellhead protection. The team includes properties served by the Honeysuckle water system and will conduct an annual outreach event. The event for 2015 was held at the Honeysuckle water plant on October 27, 2015.
