Mission Statement

Water is fundamental to life. It is at the center of our community and our community’s spirit.

  • To provide necessary maintenance for the wastewater collection and storm water collection systems
  • To provide for the growth of Hobart by making plans for future wastewater and stormwater needs
  • Through the creation and performance of best management practices, to protect the watershed of the city
  • To provide the greatest value to our citizens

Service Line Responsibilities
Customer Responsibilities

The customer is responsible for the sewer service from the house to the sewer main, including the tap. All service work requires a sewer permit. If the customer’s house is across the street from the sewer main and the sewer service runs under the asphalt/pavement, the customer is responsible for obtaining a sewer permit and a road cut permit if the customer needs to rip up the street asphalt to affect repairs. Both permits are available at the Building Department at 414 Main Street, second floor, Hobart, IN 46342.

If the sewer service work also requires ripping up the sidewalk in front of the customer’s house, the customer is responsible for replacing the sidewalk. The Sewer Department is only responsible for the sewer main itself.
