American with Disabilities Act
 
 
 

ADA SETP

In 1990, the Federal Government enacted the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Title II of the ADA required all public organizations with 50 or more employees adopt a Transition Plan identifying physical obstacles limiting access to programs, services and activities by persons with qualified disabilities and bring related deficiencies into compliance with the ADA. The City of Elkhart's elected officials and staff believe everyone has a right to access public rights-of-way, facilities and programs. The City of Elkhart is committed to making that happen.

ElkhartWood

The Elkhart Environmental Center (EEC) is committed to providing opportunities for citizens to create a healthier and more resilient local environment. The ElkhartWood program, a partnership between the Forestry Division and the EEC, is dedicated to full-circle urban forestry. It creates access to high-quality logs from city trees for sawyers, woodworkers and others in the local wood products industry to utilize for value-added processing, keeping the product local and its unique history intact. Sale of these logs supports community tree plantings. Therefore when city trees do have to come down the program enables them to be put to their highest and best use and in doing so invests back into the tree canopy of the city.

The ElkhartWood program also supports workshops and educational opportunities related to urban forestry and wood products.

Upcoming Opportunities

ElkhartWood Sawmill Day - October 2017
Date & Time - TBA

The EEC will be hosting a sawmill day in support of the ElkhartWood Program. Individuals who have purchased ElkhartWood logs will be able to work with a local sawyer to have the logs milled on-site using a portable sawmill during this event. The log sales go directly to support the ElkhartWood Community Tree Planting Fund. The event will be held in the log yard at the EEC. Logs must be purchased through the EEC. Milling services and fees must be arranged directly with the sawyer. To participate or for an up-to-date list of the logs available for purchase, please contact the EEC directly at (574) 293-5070 or eecmail@coei.org


How it all began….

The program began with a meeting back in October of 2012 that brought together sawyers, woodworkers, and others in the local wood products industry along with the City Forester and the EEC. The City of Elkhart, like so many communities around the country, was in the middle of the  Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) infestation. EAB is an invasive beetle whose larvae consume the living tissue between the bark and the heartwood of ash trees, cutting off the flow of water and nutrients; girdling the tree.

EAB does not hurt the heartwood of the tree so it can still be used, but with a large number of the city’s ash trees expected to come down over the next few years something needed to be done so it would not go to waste. This was the challenge placed before the group that met in 2012. Together they helped develop the parameters for an urban wood utilization program that would give back to the community by planting new trees.

ElkhartWood Products Network

The ElkhartWood Products Network is comprised of local woodworkers, sawyers, and others involved in the wood products and tree care industries. These individuals have given their time and talent to the development of the ElkhartWood urban wood utilization program. They provide insight and feedback for developing and improving the program as well as purchase logs that come from city trees. If you would like to get involved in the network, please contact Ericka Popovich at (574) 293-5070 or send an email to Ericka.Popovich@coei.org.

Program Information
The goal of the ElkhartWood program is to think about the city forest as more than just the trees that are currently growing along streets and in parks, but to think creatively about how we as citizens can contribute to our urban canopy and how we can make the best use of city trees after they come down. The ElkhartWood program connects people to the urban canopy of our city by finding the value of community-grown trees and putting it towards planting the next generation of tree canopy in the city. ElkhartWood is full-circle urban forestry, finding value and increasing capacity for trees that are here, trees that are gone and the trees that are yet to grow.

What makes it full-circle?
When trees come down in the city or are removed for safety reasons, they aren’t going to waste. If they are of good quality they are going to sawyers, woodworkers, artists, and others who then take these logs and turn them into furniture, building materials, art, and more. Certainly not all trees are suitable for milling, most are only suitable for firewood or wood chips.  However, the trees that are suitable for milling become symbols of the stories and places of Elkhart. The logs are also a resource that can become a value-added product, locally milled, crafted, and sold in our community. Wood products from city streets and parks? That’s about as locally grown as you can get!

There is more to the story though;
Trees enhance property value, provide immediate and long-term health benefits, reduce noise and pollution, and engage citizens in caring for their environment. There are community spaces, schoolyards and other places that need trees, but often these spaces don’t have the resources or expertise to successfully establish a vibrant tree canopy. The city forestry crew already has responsibility for all the trees between the streets and the sidewalks, in the right-of-ways, and on city parks and properties, but not in these other spaces. We’re bringing together the knowledge and expertise of the city forestry crew, resources in the form of trees funded through the sale of city logs, and people in the community to plant new trees in these spaces.  Applying sites are responsible for ensuring the long-term care and health of the trees and this model allows us to expand our community capacity, grow our urban forest and make Elkhart a healthier, greener community for our citizens.

Groups and organizations in the Elkhart community can apply to do a tree planting project with the Forestry Division and the EEC. These projects establish trees on sites that might not normally receive trees as part of the city’s existing planting program. It expands our capacity to green our city and all the benefits that entails like increased property values, decreased heating and cooling costs, safer neighborhoods, and cleaner air.

Landlord and Tenant Relations

 

The information provided here and in the Landlord-Tenant Relations Booklet are provided as a courtesy of the Elkhart Human Relations Commission and it is provided for information purposes only. Please contact an attorney for legal advice.

 

What are my Responsabilities?

As a landlord you should:

  • Deliver the rental premises to a tenant in compliance with the lease agreement, and in safe, clean and habitable condition.
  • Comply with all health and housing codes applicable to the rental premises.
  • Make all reasonable efforts to keep common areas of a rental premises clean and proper condition.
  • Provide and maintain appliances, elevators, electrical, plumbing, heating/venting/air conditioning and sanitary systems in a rental premises in good and safe working condition, if provided on premises at time of lease agreement.

 

As a tenant you should:

  • Comply with all obligations imposed on a tenant by applicable provisions of health and housing codes.
  • Keep the areas of the rental premises occupied or used by the tenant reasonably clean.
  • Use appliances, elevators, electrical, plumbing, heating/venting/air conditioning and sanitary systems in a reasonable manner.
  • Refrain from defacing, damaging, destroying, impairing, or removing any part of the rental premises.
  • Comply with all reasonable rules and regulations in lease agreement. If lease agreement is amended, tenant shall also comply to those rules and regulations.
  • Ensure that each smoke detector installed in the rental premises remains functional.

 

What is a Lease Agreement?

A lease agreement are the rules you agree to live by while renting a dwelling. It can be a written or an oral agreement. A lease is a legally binding document, which contains rights and responsibilities of the landlord and the tenant.

 

A lease should contain the following:

  • Address of dwelling unit
  • Names and signatures of the landlord and the tenant(s)
  • The starting and ending dates of lease
  • The amount of rent
  • Pet deposit/pet rent
  • When rent is due and late fees
  • Who pays the utilities
  • The amount of any deposit and the conditions for return of the deposit
  • The name of the person who is responsible for repairs and damages to the property
  • A description of the condition of the property at the time the tenant moves in and when the tenant moves out
  • A list of all persons that will be living in the dwelling
  • Repair and maintenance responsibilities

A good lease will contain all of these things but does not have to contain all of them to belegally binding by the parties. Be sure you understand the lease before you sign it.

 

How much Deposit can a landlord charge?

There are no rules in the State of Indiana governing how much deposit landlords can charge. Normally landlords charge one (1) month’s rent or first and last month’s rent.

 

Can a landlord charge a Pet Rent and Pet Deposit?

Yes. There is no law prohibiting a landlord from charging an extra fee as a pet deposit or prohibiting a landlord from charging an extra fee each month for a pet. This additional fee may be considered pet rent. There are no rules that state how much landlords can charge and the pet deposit and/or the monthly pet rent may also be NON-REFUNDABLE. Be sure you understand the terms of lease before you sign it or verbally commit to it.

 

The pet rent/deposit may be:

  • non-refundable
  • in addition to your security deposit
  • unrealistic
  • permitted by state law
  • MAY NOT be charged if you have a service animal (certified for your disability). Exemptions exist.
  • any amount agreed to by you and your landlord  
  • non-discriminatory
  • based on size of pet
  • based on number of pets
  • based on type of pet

 

What is a Service or Support Animal?

Service animals are animals that have been trained to perform tasks that assist people with disabilities. Service animals may also be referred to as assistance animals, assist animals, support animals, or helper animals. Service or support animals are not pets.

 

Move-In and Move-Out Checklist

Before you move into a rented Home or Apartment, be sure to do a walk through with the owner or property manager. Why? Because when you move out, the landlord may attempt to charge you for "damages" to the unit. What defines damages is often contested and the tenant, unless they have a move-in-checklist and pictures, may lose out in court.

When you move out a general rule of thumb to remember- are you leaving the unit in the same condition as when you moved in? Again take pictures and have the landlord or property manager agree to the condition. Same when you leave.

A landlord can only withhold for damages in amounts that are deemed reasonable for the damage claimed. If a defect existed before you moved in, you should not be charged for that particular problem. The importance of pictures and a move-in checklist cannot be stressed enough. Normal wear and tear is vague term and means different things to different people. As a landlord or tenant you should protect yourself.

 

Do I need to save my receipts?

Yes, a receipt is your protection should the landlord claim that you are behind in your rent and takes you to Small Claims Court to evict you. You should always pay your rent by check or money order. If you pay in cash, be sure to have the landlord give you a signed and dated receipt.

 

Can my landlord enter my dwelling at any time?

No, unless the landlord has a court order or if the tenant has abandoned or surrendered the property. The landlord may enter the property without notice in case of an emergency that threatens the safety of the occupants or the property. The landlord does have the right to have a key to your dwelling and to inspect for damages you may have caused. The landlord shall NOT abuse the right of entry or use the right of entry to harass a tenant. The landlord shall give a tenant reasonable written or oral notice of the landlord’s intent to enter the property and may enter only at reasonable times.

 

Does a landlord have to provide a functional smoke detector?

Yes. The landlord shall require the tenant to admit in writing that the rental unit is equipped with a functional smoke detector when the tenant moves in. This agreement cannot be waived in the rental agreement or a separate writing.

 

Do I need renters’ insurance?

No, but it is a good idea. Renters’ insurance is available for covering your personal property at reasonable rates. The landlord is not responsible for your personal belongings in case of fire, theft, etc. Contact an insurance agent for information.

 

Can my landlord raise my rent, change or end the lease?

Unless otherwise provided for in a written lease, a landlord is required to give a tenant at least thirty (30) days’ written notice before modifying the rental agreement, including any changes in the amount of rent.

 

If my rent is late, can I be charged a late fee?            

Yes, if it is stated in your lease. If you have paid rent late in the past and the landlord has accepted it without charging a late fee, the landlord must notify you in writing when the lease is renewed that late payments will result in a late fee being charged and the amount to be paid as a late fee.

 

Can I be evicted if I can only pay part of my rent?

Yes, you agreed to pay all of your rent on time. If you fail to do so, you are breaking the lease and can be evicted.

 

If my landlord refuses to fix things, can I withhold part of my rent?

No, with very few exceptions. You should seek legal advice. All of the following must happen:

  • You must notify the landlord preferably in writing of the repairs necessary, keep a copy of the letter, and turn a copy of the letter over to Code Enforcement Officials at 229 S. Second Street (City Municipal Building) if the property is located within the city limits.

 

The landlord must make necessary repairs if:

  • Stated in the lease.
  • By saying, he/she will make the repairs (have a witness to prove this).
  • By sending someone to make the repairs.
  • By being told by Code Enforcement Officials to make the repairs.

 

You should give the landlord time to make the necessary repairs and keep your rent current.

 

Can my landlord take my personal property out of my home or prevent me from getting my property if I do not pay my rent?

No, under the law, your landlord generally cannot take or dispose of your personal property for any reason, even if you have not paid your rent or have violated your lease in some way. There are exceptions to this rule. Your landlord may be able to take or dispose of your personal property if: Your landlord has a court order that allows him/her to take or dispose of your property; or you sign an agreement with your landlord separate from your lease that your landlord may hold your property freely offered in exchange for the landlord not evicting you; or there is a mobile home park lien on your property; or if the rented property has been abandoned by the tenant.

 

If your landlord keeps your belongings, you should immediately demand their return. You should go get them quickly if the landlord offers to return them. If they are not returned, you might be able to sue your landlord to have them returned. You should consult an attorney as soon as possible to determine your legal rights if your landlord is holding your personal property.

 

Can my landlord lock me out of my home?

No, your landlord cannot change the locks, install a dead bolt, or do anything to prevent you from entering your home, UNLESS your landlord has a court order allowing them to do so. One exception to this rule is if you have not paid or offered to pay your rent AND your home has been abandoned. You have abandoned your home if the circumstances reasonably show that you have given up possession.    

 

What are the reasons my landlord can evict me?

Even if your rent is current, the landlord may evict you for the following reasons:

  • If you willfully and severely damage the property.
  • Break the terms of the lease.
  • If you do not have a written lease, the landlord may end the lease with only one (1) rent period’s warning: If you pay weekly, one (1) week’s notice; if you pay monthly, one (1) month’s notice, etc.

                                                                                              

How can my landlord evict me?

The landlord must take you to court. Also, you must receive notice of any legal action taken by your landlord against you.

The landlord need only show that you are behind in your rent. If the landlord goes through Small Claims Court, you will receive notice by certified mail or delivery by the sheriff. There will be a date for you to appear in court; if you do not show up; the landlord automatically wins. You will be allowed to present evidence in court (This is why you save your receipts). If you cannot be in court at the time you are ordered to appear, contact the court before the date and request a new court date.

 

Can my landlord shut off my utilities if I have not paid the rent?

No, not unless your landlord has a court order allowing him/her to shut off your utilities, or you have abandoned your home. However, your landlord can shut off your electricity, gas, water, or other essential services if there is an emergency, to make repairs, or for necessary construction. The landlord also cannot remove the doors, windows, fixtures, or appliances from your home.

 

Can my landlord terminate my lease as a victim of certain crimes?

No. A landlord may not terminate, refuse to renew, refuse to enter into a lease or retaliate against a tenant solely because a tenant, applicant, or a member of the tenant’s or applicant’s household is a protected individual.

 

What is a protected individual?

A protected individual is one who is a victim or alleged victim of a crime involving domestic or family violence, a sex offense or a stalking offense and has received a civil order for protection or a restraining order issued by the court.

 

Does my landlord have to change my locks if a court issues a protection/restraining order?

Yes. You must provide the landlord a written request and the copy of the court order. The landlord has no later than forty-eight (48) hours to change the locks if the individual restrained from contact with the tenant does not reside at the same property. The landlord has no later than twenty-four (24), if individual restrain does reside in the same property.

The tenant shall be responsible for reimbursing the landlord for the actual expense incurred for changing the locks. If the landlord fails to change the locks and the tenant changes the locks, the landlord shall reimburse the tenant for the actual expense incurred in changing the locks.  

 

What can I do if my landlord has wrongfully locked me out of my home or shut off my utilities?

You can ask your local Small Claims Court for an emergency order telling your landlord to let you back in your home or restore your utility service. You must file a sworn written statement that tells the court exactly what your landlord has done, or threatened to do, and what damages, inconveniences, and costs you have suffered because of your landlord’s actions. When you ask for an emergency order, the court must set an emergency hearing within three (3) business days.

 

What will happen at the emergency hearing?

At the hearing, you can get an emergency order returning your home to you and preventing your landlord from committing further violations. If the court finds probable cause that your landlord has threatened to or has locked you out, removed doors, windows, fixtures, or appliances, or shut off your utilities, AND you will suffer immediate and serious damage, you can be granted an emergency hearing.

 

The court also can make other orders, depending on your situation, and set another hearing to award damages or to order the return of any of your property that your landlord has taken.

 

Can my landlord get an emergency order too?

Yes, your landlord can get an emergency order if he/she proves that there is probable cause to believe you have committed or threatened to commit waste to your home and they have suffered immediate and serious damage due to your actions. Waste does not include failing to pay your rent. Your landlord can get an emergency order that tells you to move from your home or stop committing waste to your home.

 

My landlord got an emergency order evicting me, but I did not know about the hearing. Is there anything that I can do?

When a landlord asks for a hearing and order, the court clerk must give you notice of the date, time, and place of the hearing. If you do not get notice of the hearing, you can ask the court to set aside the emergency order and give you a new hearing. If you are in this situation, you should contact a private attorney or your local legal services office.

 

Under what circumstances can my landlord keep my deposit?

  • You have not paid all of your rent up to the time you move.
  • You have caused damage beyond normal wear and tear.
  • The dwelling is very dirty when you move out.
  • You have not paid all utilities due that are your obligation to pay.

 

The landlord has forty-five (45) days after you move out to return either your full deposit or an itemized list of damages and the amount of damages claimed. You must give the landlord a written notice of your forwarding address.

 

Your deposit may be used to pay for the damages claimed by the landlord. If there is a refund remaining after any damages are assessed to you, then the landlord must pay that to you within that forty-five (45) day period. This list must be sent to you with payment for the amount of your deposit that was not withheld for damages.

 

If I move before my lease has ended, do I still have to pay rent?

If you agreed to rent a dwelling until a certain date and you move out prior to that date, the landlord may charge you rent if the dwelling remains empty. The landlord must make a reasonable effort to rent the dwelling.

 

Does my landlord have to renew my lease if my rent is current and I want to stay?

No, the landlord is not obligated to rent to you beyond the date agreed. If there is no written lease, the landlord must give you one (1) rent period’s notice prior to ending the lease. If you have a year-to-year lease with no ending date, the landlord must give you three (3) months’ notice to end the lease.

 

What should I do if my rental property does not meet minimum housing standards?

If the property is within the City of Elkhart, contact Code Enforcement at (574) 294-5471 between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. weekdays. If you have requested that repairs be made for your safety and the landlord refused to make needed repairs, contact Code Enforcement Officials. Do not wait until you are being evicted to report violations.

 

Who should I contact about any lease noncompliance disputes?

For any disputes regarding non compliance with Indiana Landlord-Tenant Relations IC 32-31 such as evictions or noncompliance with the lease terms and conditions. A landlord or tenant must go through their Small claims court. For all residents living in Elkhart County contact the Elkhart County Small Claims court, 315 S. 2nd Street, Elkhart, IN 46516 at (574) 523-2305.

  What is Fair Housing?

 

 

The Fair Housing Act of 1968 (FHA) as amended, prohibits discrimination in housing based on your:

 

RACE

COLOR

NATIONAL ORIGIN

RELIGION

SEX

FAMILIAL STATUS

DISABILITY

 

It is also against the law to:

  • Deny a person rental or purchase of a single or multi-family dwelling.
  • Deny purchase of vacant land intended for housing.
  • Use discriminatory advertising and marketing for housing.
  • Set different terms, conditions on the sale or rental of a property.
  • Steer a person from renting or purchasing a property.
  • Coerce, threaten, intimidate, or interfere with a person's enjoyment or exercise of their housing rights.
  • Retaliate against a person or organization that aids or encourages the exercise or enjoyment of fair housing rights.

 

Accessibility for Disabled People

The FHA requires housing providers to make reasonable accommodations in policies and procedures necessary and related to a person's disability. Accommodations such as allowing services/support animals, assigned parking, transfer to accessible units, or early lease termination if necessary.

Modifications to property may be granted by the landlord if they are absolutely necessary and related to the person's disability. These modifications can be at the tenant's expense, and may require approval of such changes. If approved, such changes may also be required to be changed to its original condition.

Apartment and Condos built after March 1991 have to include the following:

  • Accessible routes in units, between units, around units and in common areas.
  • Reachable light switches, electrical outlets and temperature controls.
  • Wide doors, reinforced bathroom walls for grab bars.
  • Clear floor space in bathrooms and kitchens.

 

Exemptions to the Act:

There are exemptions to the Fair Housing Act. Only if:

  • The owner resides in the building and the building has no more than four units.
  • The owner does not own more than three single-family houses.
  • A single family home is sold or rented without the use of a broker.
  • The property is operated by organizations or private clubs that limit occupancy to members.

 

Filing a Discrimination Complaint

If you believe you were discriminated and want to file a complaint with the Elkhart Human Relations Commission (EHRC), be sure that:

  • The discriminatory housing practice has occurred or happened within 1 year.
  • The location at which such allegation happened is within the City of Elkhart's limits.*

 

The Investigative Procedure

Once a complaint is filed the EHRC has 100 days to resolve the case, in some cases it may take longer. The investigation shall be impartial and limited in each instance to the alleged discriminatory practice. Our files are confidential and the information gathered during the investigation will remain confidential.

The investigator will collect and summarize the facts. The investigator will collect the best evidence available for each side. Thus you may be asked to supply documents which support your position. The investigator may also seek information to compare the treatment given the complainant to treatment given to others similarly situated. We may call a "fact-finding conference", an informal meeting with the complainant and respondent, to discuss the issues and try to settle the case. The fact-finding conference is not a hearing.

 

Determination

After the investigation is finished, the investigator presents the facts to the director who reviews the material and makes a determination or Reasonable Cause finding or No Reasonable Cause finding that an illegal act of discrimination may have occurred. A Reasonable Cause finding does not mean the complainant won the case. The director then takes this information to the commissioners who take a vote on the case's Cause Determination. This is not the final decision, but is a finding that a discriminatory act may have been committed.

 

Conciliation

If the parties reach an agreement, the parties are given a chance to compromise their differences with negotiations through the director or a staff member. The EHRC can recover compensatory or punitive damages.

 

Public Hearing

The case is heard at a formal public hearing. The burden of proof is on the complainant. A designated hearing officer presides at the public hearing.

 

Final Order

A final order by the commission is binding. Either party may seek judicial review of the commission's findings.

 

Remedies

If the Commission finds discrimination, a final order may include a cease and desist order, require proof of compliance at periodic intervals and the complainant's losses and actual damages, which could include: moving expenses, storage expenses, travel costs, etc. The Commission may also impose a penalty.

 


 

* If the location is outside the City of Elkhart's limits, your complaint has to be filed through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Develpment (HUD). Click on the icon below to access their webiste, they may also be reached by calling 1-800-669-9777 or TTD 1-800-927-9275.

Employment Discrimination

 

The time limit for filing an employment discrimination complaint with the Human Relations Commission and I.C.R.C. is one-hundred and eighty (180) days from the date the alleged act of discrimination occurred. The time limit for filing with the E.E.O.C. is three-hundred (300) days from the date the alleged act of discrimination occurred; except for filing age discrimination which is one-hundred and eighty (180) days from the date the alleged act of discrimination occurred. You will be asked to provide information that will determine whether your situation meets the legal criteria for filing a complaint of discrimination. If it does not, an explanation will be provided.

 
If you file a complaint of discrimination with the Human Relations Commission, you may also want to file the same charge with the E.E.O.C. in the case of employment discrimination. If you file a charge with the E.E.O.C. under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, you have preserved your right to sue the respondent in the United States District Court.
 
 

Filing a Discrimination Complaint

Why Should You Conserve Water?

Water is one of the Earth's most essential resources. All life depends on it. Eighty percent of Earth is covered with water but, only 3 percent is fresh water. Of that freshwater less than 1 percent of all water is available for human consumption; the rest is salty ocean water, or freshwater that is bound up in glaciers and polar ice caps. People use up our planet's fresh water faster than it can naturally be replenished.

  • When you use water wisely, you save money. Your family pays for the water you use. If you use less water, you'll have more money left to spend on other things.
  • When you use water wisely, you save energy. You save the energy that your water supplier uses to treat and move water to you, and the energy your family uses to heat your water.
  • When you use water wisely, you help the environment. The less water you send down the drain, the more there is available for drinking water and you save water for plants and animals.

FREE WATER CONSERVATION KITS!

Bring Water Conservation Home! City of Elkhart's Public Works and Utilities Department offers City water customers free water-saving devices, including water-efficient shower heads, faucet aerators, toilet water tank displacement devices and leak detection tablets.  This kit is free for all City of Elkhart water customers and $15 for non-city water customers or for additional kits.  For more information, please call the Elkhart Public Works and Utilities at 574-293-2572.

Mercury drops

What is Mercury?

The Basics:
The shimmering liquid metal mercury is one of the basic natural elements that make up the Earth's composition. Mercury is known as a "heavy metal" because it is very dense. A cup of mercury, for example, is more than fourteen-times heavier than a cup of water.
 
Mercury in Our Environment...
Low levels of mercury can be found throughout the environment--in rocks, plants, animals, water and the air. Mercury becomes airborne when rocks erode, volcanoes erupt and soil decomposes. It then circulates in the atmosphere and is redistributed throughout the environment.Mercury factoid
 
Mercury is also released into the environment (typically airborne) when coal, oil or natural gas is burned or mercury-containing garbage is incinerated. Once in the air, mercury can fall to the ground with rain and snow, landing on the soil or in various water bodies, causing contamination. Lakes and rivers can also become contaminated when there is a direct discharge of mercury-laden industrial waste or municipal sewage. Once present in these water bodies, mercury accumulates in fish and may ultimately reach the dinner table.
 
Mercury's Effect on Humans...
Mercury has been a part of human culture throughout history.  In more recent times, mercury was used for preparing felt for hats, controlling mildew in paints, killing weeds as a component of herbicides, as well as various medical uses (using mercury in these ways is no longer common).  Today, we recognize that mercury is a neurotoxin. Exposure to mercury can deteriorate the nervous system, impairing hearing, vision, speech and even a person's gait. It can also cause involuntary muscle movement and make chewing and swallowing more difficult. High levels of exposure can lead to serious illness or even death. Locally, the majority of exposure to mercury is the result of eating fish containing mercury or when a product containing mercury is broken and the mercury is exposed to air or directly contacted. Knowing what products may have mercury as well as the proper disposal can help ensure that humans and the environment are protected.
 
Mercury Containing Items:
Fish - nearly all fish and shellfish contain traces of mercury depending on where the fish was caught and the type. Be sure to check for fish advisories before consuming.

Thermometers - mercury is used in fever, basal, weather, and candy/deep fry thermometers since mercury expands and contracts evenly with changes in temperature.

Lights - mercury is used in fluorescent lights, neon lights, outdoor security and street lighting, and headlights. Fluorescent lights, however, are very energy and cost efficient so they should be used, but recycled.

Dental Amalgam - also known as "silver filling", it is made of two nearly equal parts: liquid mercury and a powder containing silver, tin, copper, zinc and other metals.

Button Batteries - including in watches, hearing aids, toys and other devices requiring small batteries, contain small amounts of mercury.

Switches & Relays - mercury has been used as an electrical conductor in a variety of switches. When the device is moved, the switch tilts and mercury makes the electrical contact.  Many manufacturers have removed these switches but they still may be found especially in older items. Examples include: non-digital thermostats, chest freezer, automobile hood lights, irons/space Heaters, washing machine, laptop computer, lawn mowers.
 
For more information about sources of mercury please check out the EPA website at: http://www.epa.gov/hg/mgmt_options.html#consumer 
 

Human activity on the ground surface can also affect our ground water quality. Substances can dissolve in the water on the surface and are carried down to the aquifer. The substances can come from households, agriculture, or industries.Contamination of ground water may make it unfit for certain uses and may become harmful to humans, animals, vegetation, and property. Treatment of contaminated ground water is usually expensive, and sometimes a contaminated water supply must be abandoned and a new supply located. Preventing contamination before it occurs is the best solution. Wellhead protection is a way to protect our drinking water by managing the areas around our water supply to prevent contamination. This is done by setting up a zone around the well called a Wellhead Protection Area. Within this area, any spills or leaks of materials that could contaminate the ground water are a concern.

These signs are posted along the outside the wellfield protection areas of the City's three wellfields.

The City of Elkhart's drinking water source is ground water that comes from an aquifer several hundred feet below ground. The City is firmly committed to providing water that meets all regulatory requirements for quality and our citizens' expectations. The US Environmental Protection Agency requires that public drinking water systems provide information to the community describing efforts to protect groundwater, any regulated substances found in the water and an explanation of potential contaminants.

Our sewer system, like many in cities throughout the United States, was designed to carry both sewage and rainwater - with relief points that overflow when too much rainwater enters the system.
 
During dry weather, sewage flows safely through the sewers to our wastewater treatment plant. However, during rainstorms or snowmelt the incoming stormwater can overwhelm the sewers and cause raw sewage to overflow into the St. Joseph River, Elkhart River and Christiana Creek.
 
During wet weather, overflows can occur at up to 29 locations along our waterways, and can be triggered by as little as two-tenths of an inch of rainfall or snowmelt.
  
Elkhart has developed a Plan to capture and treat more of these overflows. 
  
Elkhart strives to inform our citizens that caution should be taken when choosing to engage in recreational activity on or in the surface water bodies of our community during and after a rainfall or snowmelt event. The link below provides more information about how the City meets this goal.

City of Elkhart Residential Sewer Insurance Program

Quick Reference Help Guide

If you are a residential customer living in a dwelling with no more than two units, paying for sewer service with the City of Elkhart, you may have the option of filing a sewer insurance claim with the City of Elkhart.

NOTE: It is considered a homeowner's responsibility and routine maintenance to hire a professional sewer cleaner* to clean the sewer line from their home to the street every year at their own expense.

A homeowner may qualify to file a Sewer Insurance claim in the following circumstances:

  • Homeowner hired a professional sewer cleaner* and the cleaner determined the line outside the house could not be cleared of the blockage.
  • Homeowner hired a professional sewer cleaner* and within 12 months following that cleaning, they experience sewer back-up problems again resulting from problems outside of the house.

If either situation applies, please contact the City of Elkhart Public Works department at 574-293-2572 regarding the Sewer Insurance Program.

Sewer Insurance Program Information

  • Homeowner provides a receipt from professional sewer cleaner* and pays a $400.00 deductible.
  • The City of Elkhart will restore the sewer to a functioning capacity.
  • If the cost of repair/restoration is less than $400.00, the applicant will receive a partial refund.
  • Typically, if there is no outside cleanout, one will be installed.
  • All work completed through the program will be guaranteed for one (1) year.

Sewer Insurance does not cover plumbing or sewer lines inside the house.

* If the homeowner chooses to clean the sewer line with his own equipment or rental equipment, this does not qualify as a cleaning that would allow the homeowner to file a claim for sewer insurance.

Welcome to Elkhart! 

We hope that the information on this page will help make your move easier. If you need further information please go to our "How do I?" link or give us a call at (574) 294-5471.
