GOSHEN The Mill Race Canal may soon be a source, once again, of energy in Michiana.

After more than a year of negotiations, the Goshen City Commission has reached an agreement with Falling Waters, Inc. that will allow the company to generate hydroelectricity.

However The Elkhart Truth reports that it will take several years to get the appropriate permits and finish construction at the powerhouse on the north end of the canal.

Eventually, Falling Waters plans to sell the electricity they create to NIPSCO.
