Storm Water Management
The City of Hobart is committed to managing a proactive storm water program which improves the quality of runoff entering from our storm water system to our streams, rivers, and lakes.

The City of Hobart Storm Water Program regulated by the Clean Water Act under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) is administrated by IDEM, the 
Indiana Department of Environmental Management. Understanding the benefits of improving the quality of storm water runoff beyond the basic level of regulatory compliance the city has been a consistent leader in the implementation of its Storm Water Program under Phase II of the NPDES regulations, .

Importance of Proper Storm Water Management
Any time it rains, water falls onto many different surfaces then depending on the surface, it soaks into the ground or runs off to another location. For instance, if rain falls on a lawn a portion soaks into the ground. If it lands on a paved parking lot, it runs off the lot to another location. This water all eventually reaches the streams, rivers and lake we all use. Within the City of Hobart the Hobart Stormwater District is responsible for this water runoff regardless of its source.

Pollution & the Environment

Many people do not realize that this storm water washes down our lawns, drives and streets flowing directly to our ponds, creeks, rivers, and lakes. This storm water flow becomes polluted with eroded soils, automotive fluids, trash, and lawn chemicals. The pollution then effects our ability to use our water for drinking or recreational purposes as well as degrading fish and other aquatic habitats.
The only way to lessen this pollution is to reduce the amount of pollutants washed away by storm water. The goal of the Hobart Stormwater District is to provide effective technics to protect our water resources by controlling this runoff pollution.

Problem Reporting

Please report pollution, illegal connections and illicit discharges by contacting the Hobart Stormwater District or  via email.
