NPCD uses Astbury Water Technology Group to handle the District's wastewater operations. You can reach Don Neff at 574-831-6109
Due to the excessive rain we have had; It was discovered that the sewage coming into the plant was diluted with water.
When the treatment plant was built, it was not built taking ground water into consideration. There is no way for the plant to bypass the groundwater coming into the plant. All wastewater coming into the plant has to be treated. To do this is very expensive.
We were able to locate where the heaviest flows were coming from. Those freeholders all received certified letters requesting that they call and make an appointment so we can come out and inspect their sump pump discharge. NPCD‘s representative would then assist the freeholder, if it is discovered that groundwater is being discharged into the sewer. Informing them what needs to be done to keep them in compliance with our ordinance.
In our sewer use ordinance; properties with illegal hookups can be fined $2,500.00 if they are found to be in violation.
The Board does not want to bring excess charges to anyone in the District. We strive to save the taxpayers money.
When the plant reaches 90% capacity; IDEM can step in and make the District enlarge the plant to accommodate excessive flows into the plant. IDEM can also stop all new construction until the plant is enlarged.
Groundwater issues fall into Elkhart County‘s jurisdiction.
If you are in the District, and are unsure of your discharge status, contact us. We will come out, free of charge , to assist you.
As always the NPCD Board of Directors meetings are open to the public. The Board consists of five elected officials. If you would like to address the Board, contact our office to be added to the agenda
We thank you for assisting us in resolving this critical matter at hand.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: JUNE 13, 2019 AT 6:30 P.M. NPCD BOARD OF DIRECTOR'S MEETING WILL BE HELD AT NEW PARIS MISSIONARY CHURCH CABIN. LOCATED AT 67621 STATE ROAD 15.
Many of you have asked what is being built on the other side of our maintenance garage.
It will be our new Administration Building!
Last year, we had three sewage overflows at the plant. Resulting in many of our files, and misc items being contaminated.
As a result of this; it is currently not a healthy work environment.
Nor is a safe environment for anyone visiting the plant.
We are a growing District; and have out grown our current office.
We are building on land that the District currently owns.
More updates as project progresses!

As a reminder, NPCD bills one month in arrears, so please contact the office for account balance information. At closing it will have to be determined by the Seller and the Buyer on who pays for the account balance. We are unable to prorate bills. Any questions, please contact our Financial Clerk/Secretary.
NPCD is a governmental entity of the State of Indiana. Being such; the monies that the District has is considered tax dollars. We cannot allow anyone to have direct access to our financial accounts. This is why we have to use a third party source for accepting credit card payments. Even if we were to set up another account; it still is considered funds and therefore the same laws would apply.
Indiana State Statutes for Conservancy Districts does not allow NPCD to incur the charges accessed by the third party financiers.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit during normal business hours.
