"Protecting Our Lakes for Your Enjoyment"

​If the utility electric power is out, the sewer grinder stations will not work with a home generator. To help prevent sewage back-ups and overflows, please keep water usage to an absolute minimum until the utility electric power is restored. Prolonged use of water while the electricity is out could cause sewage to back up into your and/or your neighbor’s home. Once power is restored,  continue to conserve water until the collection system has some time to catch up. If your grinder station's red light and buzzer don’t turn off within 60 minutes, please call the on-call number (260) 667-4330.   Learn More - Power Outage (download)

For more than 30-years, the quality of the water in the area lakes have improved greatly since the Hamilton Lake Conservancy was formed. The Hamilton Lake Conservancy operates and maintains a sewage treatment plant and collection system that services the homes and businesses of the Town of Hamilton, Indiana including Hamilton Lake, Terry Lake and Ball Lake communities. 
The Treatment Plant discharges the treated water to Fish Creek. Maintaining clean water is our job.
