The Brownsburg Wastewater Department mission is to provide our customers with the best quality of treated wastewater that the system can produce in a cost efficient manner while meeting the stringent requirements set by state and federal organizations. By complying with these requirements, we are protecting human health and the environment for our community.

What We Do

Brownsburg has a 5.25 million gallon per day Class IV facility and 34 lift stations for treating the raw sewage produced being produced by residents and businesses. The plant is regulated by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) through a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit. The treatment plant uses biological processes that remove and reduce the pollutant concentrations to meet the requirements included in an National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. This permit contains the approval criteria allowing us to discharge treated water into White Lick Creek.

We also are working on upgrades/modernization to the main pumping station, treatment plant, and collection system infrastructure on a continuous basis.

Sewer Rates

We are committed to operating efficiently and keeping sewer rates affordable for our customers. For information on rates, visit our Utility Rates page.
