What should I do if I hear an alarm or see a flashing light at a sewage lift station?

If this occurs during normal business hours, please call the Wastewater Treatment Plant at 317-852-1114 or call the Utility Billing Office at 317-852-1102. You will need to speak to a live person to address the issue. Leaving a message will not address the issue. If it is outside normal business hours, please call 911 and dispatch will address the appropriate personnel to fix the matter. Be prepared to provide your name, address and phone number.

Many of the lift stations are connected to a wireless alarm system. Please do not attempt to stop the alarms. If the audible alarm has not been stopped by town personnel within 30 minutes, please call again to verify that someone has responded to the alarm.
