(MUNCIE) - A central Indiana county council is drafting a resolution that will strongly oppose a proposed $450 million reservoir that would be formed by damming the White River.

Nearly 50 people spoke out against the proposed 2,100-acre Mounds Lake reservoir during Monday's public hearing before the Delaware County Council.

Council member Mike Jones tells The Star Press the council is drafting a statement of opposition against the project that will "be worded very strongly."

He says that resolution will then go to the county's commissioners for their approval.

The reservoir would be created by damming the White River in Anderson, creating a lake stretching seven miles from Anderson to Yorktown and flooding part of Anderson's Mounds Mall, adjacent business properties, about 400 homes and part of Mounds State Park.
