Indiana law (327 IAC 5-2.1) requires communities with combined sewer overflows (CSOs) to offer public notification when CSOs are discharging. The City of Goshen is one of Indiana’s communities with CSOs that are covered by the law. To comply, we offer our customers and other interested persons an alert notification via e-mail.
All of Goshen’s Combined Sewer Overflows are located on the Elkhart River at 705 Indiana Avenue and 1000 W. Wilden Avenue. The affected areas include:
Ox Bow County Park and any areas bordering the Elkhart River from Indiana Avenue downstream to County Road 17.
CSOs may occur when the capacity of the wet weather detention facility and the wastewater treatment plant are exceeded, due to rainfall, snowmelt, total loss of power, etc. When this occurs, the excess stormwater and sanitary sewage is discharged to the river through combined sewer overflows. The greatest impacts of discharges from CSOs are associated with bacteria in the untreated sewage and in the stormwater run-off. Bacteria levels in the river can rise for several days following a CSO discharge. Notification signs are posted at Wet Weather Detention Facility’s CSO outfall.
Interested persons may request email notification when CSOs are discharging or when there is a likelihood that discharges may occur.
Clean waterways are a priority for the City of Goshen. The City is implementing many projects to improve our waterway and to reduce combined sewer overflows. These efforts include expanding and modernizing our wastewater treatment plant and improving the sewage collection system.
