Water

Culver Water Department is located at South Ohio Street. The facility was upgraded in 2016 with the help of a grant from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs.

The Town of Culver is serviced by two wells with pump capacities of 300 gallons per minute. The water is treated through a chlorination process and then supplemented with fluoride. Water reports are sent out annually to all customers.

The Town has two water towers in service.

Utility bills are sent out monthly and include water, sewer services, and trash-recycling collection. Trash is picked up weekly early Monday morning and recycling is collected every other Monday.  One large item might be eligible for removal the last Friday of each month.  Residents must call Allied Waste (574-842-3003) directly to arrange for the Friday removal. There is a schedule for trash/recycling removal in Culver Town Hall at 200 E. Washington St.

For current rates, please contact Town Hall.

The Town of Culver has a Wellhead Protection Plan on file at the Clerk’s Office. The current consumer report for Culver’s drinking water can be found in the documents section of this site under the category “water.”

Streets

The Culver Street Department maintains the streets, alleys and storm drains to provide for safe and orderly travel within the city right-of-way for Culver pedestrians and vehicular traffic. We strive to provide the community with the best service available, within both budgetary and environmental limitations. The department workers also fix water and sewer line breaks.

Trash and Recycling services are provided by Republic Services, located on SR 17 North of Culver.  Republic Services can be reached at 574.842.4719.  For the complete schedule of pickups, go to Culver Recycle & Trash Schedule and Information 2018.

The following services are provided seasonally:

Brush pickup is offered regularly as crews are available, typically once a week. Brush should be placed on the owner’s property next to the curb. Tree trunks will not be taken, nor will trees professionally removed.

Street sweeping occurs in the warm months as a means of keeping debris from clogging the storm sewers.

Leaf pickup occurs in the fall while leaves are falling from the trees. No specific dates are set for leaf removal, but it will begin when a large quantity of leaves start to fall and will continue until the majority of leaves are picked up or snow interferes. Leaf pickup starts at one end of town and moves from one end to the other and back again.

Snow removal occurs in the winter. A snow route is enforced for parking on main roads. Snow is cleared from the main thoroughfares first and then through streets. Alleys are plowed last.

Wastewater

The Culver Wastewater Department is located at the end of Hoosier Lane, and operates under the supervision of Damon Bush and Ben Smith. The Culver wastewater plant is an extended aeration plant with a capacity of .548 million gallons per day. Sludge drying reed beds are used as part of the processing. The plant received a Lab Excellence Award in 1999 and was awarded as the Best Small Plant in Indiana in 1996.
