Notice

Water Rates Increased on November 7, 2016.

The City of Evansville’s Water Department withdraws water from the Ohio River. The 60-million-gallon-per-day treatment plant filters, treats, monitors and tests the water prior to delivering it to customers. Our laboratory tests the water within the plant and throughout the distribution system 365 days a year to ensure the quality meets or exceeds all federal and state water quality standards.

The Evansville Water Department delivers water to approximately 60,000 customers in Vanderburgh, Gibson and Warrick counties either directly or indirectly through wholesale customers of German Township Water, Gibson Water, Town of Elberfeld or Town of Newburgh.

EWSU has approximately 1,000 miles of water main lines, 6,000 fire hydrants and eight storage tanks in its system. On average, 25 million gallons of water per day are processed and treated.

Learn more about the rate increase.

Why Sewer Rates are Going Up

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility will be raising sewer rates in the coming years to comply with federal mandates and to fix existing infrastructure. The first rate increase will go into effect on January 1, 2017, and rates will increase each year through 2020.

Through Renew Evansville, EWSU is meeting federal mandates to reduce water pollution and combined sewer overflows, plus create sustainable “green” solutions.

We are also repairing and maintaining Evansville’s sewer lines and wastewater treatment plants, and beginning the preliminary work on Bee Slough.

These projects require about $185 million in capital.

How will these increases affect my bill?

Starting in January, the average residential customer who uses 4,000 gallons a month can expect the following changes to their bill:

Eone Grinder Pump Owners Guide

Eone Grinder Pump Owners Guide

East Wastewater Treatment Plant

The East Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is located on Waterworks Road, near the Ohio River. Treated effluent discharges to the Ohio River. The secondary design capacity of the East WWTP is 18.0 million gallons a day (MGD), while the primary treatment capacity is 34.6 MGD. The existing WWTP includes preliminary, primary, and secondary treatment facilities.

West Wastewater Treatment Plant

The West Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is located near the Ohio River on the west side of the city on Tekoppel Avenue. Treated effluent discharges to the Ohio River. The secondary design capacity of the West WWTP is 20.6 million gallons a day (MGD), while the primary treatment capacity is 39.5 MGD. The existing WWTP includes preliminary, primary, and secondary treatment facilities.

Lift Stations

Lift stations are used in a gravity collection system to lift (pump) wastewater to a higher elevation when the slope of the route followed by a gravity sewer would cause the sewer to be laid at an insufficient slope or at an impractical depth. Lift stations in Evansville vary in size and type depending on the quantity and height the wastewater is to be lifted.

Evansville has 92 lift stations, which are part of a telemetry system that is constantly monitored for general information or problems such as a high well or power failures. Eight hourly employees and two managers monitor the system 24 hours a day.

Wastewater Laboratory

The Evansville Wastewater Laboratory provides analytical services to both treatment plants year round This assures Evansville that only the best quality of water is returned to the Ohio River. In addition, the Evansville’s Wastewater Laboratory is in charge of monitoring local industrial sewer discharges to see that that meet all applicable standards and requirements. With a staff of six full time individuals, the laboratory completes over 30,000 analyses annually, with over 99% of the analysis being conducted in house.

Residuals

The residuals operation for the City of Evansville is responsible for the disposal of biosolids in compliance with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). The EPA classifies biosolids as “the nutrient-rich organic materials resulting from the treatment of sewage sludge for the protection of public health and the environment, the EPA developed a policy – 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 503 – to govern the disposal and use of municipal sewage sludge. Both agencies encourage the beneficial use of biosolids as land application.

Pretreatment Program

The General Pretreatment Regulations of the National Pretreatment Program require all large POTWs (those designed to treat flows of more than 5 million gallons per day) and smaller POTWs (that accept wastewater from IUs that could affect the treatment plant or its discharges) to establish local pretreatment programs. These local programs must enforce all national pretreatment standards and requirements in addition to any more stringent local requirements necessary to protect site-specific conditions at the POTW. Approximately 1,600 POTWs have developed and are implementing local pretreatment programs designed to control discharges from approximately 23,000 significant IUs.

Since the promulgation of the General Pretreatment Regulations in1983, the National Pretreatment Program has made great strides in reducing the introduction of toxic pollutants to sewer systems and to waters of the United States. In the eyes of many, the National Pretreatment Program—implemented as a partnership between EPA, states, and POTWs—is a notable success among efforts to reduce the effects of pollution on human health and the environment. Such strides can be attributed to the efforts of many federal, state, local, and industrial representatives who have been involved with developing and implementing the various aspects of the National Pretreatment Program.

The Evansville Water and Sewer Utility Pretreatment Department can be reached at (812) 426-2820.

Matt McBride, FOG Coordinator, Evansville Water and Sewer Utility, (812) 436-7013 or mmcbride@ewsu.com

Grease trap cleaning isn't difficult, but it can be inconvenient and time-consuming. If you do not want to do this work yourself, professional grease trap cleaning will ensure that your equipment lasts as long as possible with high functionality.

The following links offer valuable information regarding best management practices for managing food materials, grease trap design, maintenance, function and go-green initiatives. Furthermore, the EWSU Water and Sewer Manual is provided as a guide for the planning, design, and construction of sanitary sewer collection systems and water distribution systems and related facilities for projects that are initiated by private entities such as land developers, private property owners or other such parties, and that require EWSU approval and/or acceptance.

Sewer backups are a common problem in U.S. cities and towns.

Although municipal utility departments try to prevent such incidents, they still occur. The following information may help property owners and residents understand why backups happen, how they can be prevented and what steps citizens should take if a sewer backup affects their property.

What causes a sewer backup?

Sanitary sewers flow by gravity so they generally follow the natural slope of the ground. The sewer mains that the city owns and maintains are generally from eight to 15 feet deep, with some being much deeper. Sanitary sewer backups can be attributed to in either the city’s main sewer lines or in the private sewer service line, which the property owner owns and maintains (sewer line between buildings and the city’s main sewer line).

Causes of a backup may include pipe breaks or cracks due to tree roots, system deterioration, insufficient system capacity due to residential or commercial growth, or construction mishaps. In home and office plumbing systems, a frequent cause is accumulation of grease, tree roots, hair or other solid materials that are too large for wastewater pipes to handle.

Another frequent cause of blockages within the city’s system is vandalism. Report criminal activity by calling (812) 421-2130 to alert the sewer department and prevent backups from occurring.

How could a sewer backup affect me?

If the backup occurs in a city maintained line, the wastewater will normally overflow out of the lowest possible opening. In some homes - especially those with basements, or where the lowest level is even with the sewer lines - the overflowing wastewater may exit through the home’s lower drains and toilet.

What should I do if sewage backs up into my home?

First, take action to protect people and valuable property:

  • Keeping in mind that ceramic plumbing fixtures such as toilets are fragile, quickly close all drain openings with stoppers or plugs. Tub, sink and floor drains may need additional weight to keep them sealed.
  • Don't run any water down your drains until the blockage has been cleared.
  • Check with neighbors to determine if the backup appears to be in your neighbor's wastewater line, and/or widespread in your neighborhood. If it is, call (812) 421-2130.
  • Call a plumber if the problem is in your lateral service line.

If I call the city, what will they do about a sewer backup onto my property?

  • You will be asked questions about the backup timing, location, the property at risk, etc.
  • City personnel will check for blockages in the main line. If found, the blockage will be immediately cleared.
  • If the main line is not blocked, you will be advised to call a plumbing or sewer contractor to check your service line. Click here for the handbook on customer rights and responsibilities.
  • To minimize damage and negative health effects, you should arrange for clean up of the property as soon as possible. There are qualified businesses that specialize in this type of clean up and restoration.

How can I prevent sewer backups?

  • Avoid putting grease down your garbage disposal or household drain.
  • Never flush disposable diapers, sanitary napkins or paper towels down the toilet.
  • If the lateral line in your older home has a jointed pipe system, consider whether the roots of large shrubs or trees near the line could invade and break pipes. It is a good idea to know the location of your lateral line(s). You can call the sewer department for assistance in locating where your service line connects to the city’s sewer main. Your plumber may be able to help you further determine the service line location too.
  • If the lowest level of your home is below ground level, such as a basement floor drain, consider installing a backflow valve on the lowest drain(s). You may also use a plumbers test plug to close these drains when not in use.
  • For further information about preventive measures, contact a licensed plumber or visit your nearest plumbing supply dealer.

What does the municipality do to prevent this problem?

Reasonable effort by the City is undertaken to prevent backups in the public wastewater system before they occur:

  • Sewer lines are specially designed to prevent accumulation and stoppages.
  • In addition, we have maintenance crews that are devoted to inspecting and cleaning wastewater lines throughout the city on a regular schedule.
  • Degreasing chemicals are also injected into lines in areas that are prone to stoppages, such as those near restaurants, apartments or high-density housing developments.
  • Even with our maintenance schedule, however, backups are often beyond the city's control. Most that do occur are confined to the sewage pipeline, rather than backing up into a home.

Will insurance cover any damage to my home or property?

In the majority of cases, a special rider will need to be added to your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy to cover damages related to sewage backups or water damage. The city does not assume financial responsibility for damages resulting from sewage backups, since most stoppages are related to conditions that are beyond the city’s control.

How and where should I report a sewer backup?

Emergency crews are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist you. In an emergency such as a sewer line backup, or if you observe any vandalism associated with the wastewater or sewer lines, contact Emergency Sewer Services at (812) 421-2130.

The heavy trash collection program is available to residents of the City of Evansville in fall and spring.

The heavy trash contractor will not pick up trash that would normally be picked up as part of the regular weekly collection.

Heavy trash, or bulky trash, includes but is not limited to the following items: furniture, such as sofas, tables, chairs, mattresses and box springs; appliances, including stoves, refrigerators, washing machines, clothes dryers and water heaters; and building materials and construction debris. No electronics, such as televisions, stereos, or computers and accessories will be picked up!

No more than two of each type of appliance will be collected per address. Carpet must be rolled in sections no longer than 4 feet and no bigger than 2 feet in diameter. Loose building materials and construction debris must be placed in a container. Nails need to be removed. These containers should be no heavier than can reasonably be lifted by two average adults. Containers should be strong enough to not break apart while being lifted even if they are wet. Automobile parts, automotive or household batteries, tires, computer equipment or hazardous materials will not be picked up. Privacy fence sections must be cut in half or to a smaller manageable size. No concrete blocks, bricks or steel poles are permitted.

Heavy trash should be placed wherever your trash is normally collected from the home, whether at the curb or in the alley. All heavy trash items must be set out before 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.

To assist residents with extra yard waste generated while cleaning up their yards in the spring, the City’s Automated Trash Program provides an annual service for unlimited yard waste to be picked up during the first four full (4) weeks of April.

The yard waste needs to be properly contained in plastic bags, in tied bundles or loose in containers. No special bags are required because this waste will be going to the landfill with your regular trash.

The current Trash & Recycling Program only allows for the emptying of one (1) trash and one (1) recycling cart which are supplied by the City. Extra materials outside the carts will not be picked up except during the “Annual Spring Yard Waste” four (4) week period and the “Fall Leaf” eight (8) week period.

We encourage residents to recycle as much as possible to make room for additional volume in their trash and yard waste cart. If you require additional service for trash or recycling, you may contact Republic Service's Customer Service desk at (812) 424-3345. A one-time service fee of $100 will be charged per request, which entitles you to additional service at no additional monthly cost. The City of Evansville will supply an additional Cart with each request. Please note that only City of Evansville-supplied carts will be emptied.

Please contact Republic Services at (812) 424-3345 if you need additional service.

The Annual Fall Leaf Pick-up lasts eight weeks in the fall, from mid-October to mid-December.

This annual service is available to City residents who pay for trash service with their water bill, including newly annexed areas. Apartment complexes, mobile home communities and business/commercial customers are not eligible.

Leaves must be contained in biodegradable plastic or paper leaf bags, or in containers, and placed separately from where the normal weekly trash is collected. The bags or containers should be placed at the pickup location before 6 a.m. on the normal days of collection. These bags should only be placed at the pickup location on your normal day of trash collection.

Leaves not in biodegradable bags that do not meet these requirements will not be picked up. Residences with leaves not in the biodegradable bags will be notified to re-bag their leaves in biodegradable bags, and they will be picked up the following week.

If a customer has put their leaves out according to the requirements above, yet feels they were missed, they can call Republic Services at (812) 424-3345 within two days to report a possible missed pick-up.
