Elimination of RV waste dump station at Spencer Park in Logansport

Last Updated on February 5, 2024 by Logansport Utilities

The recreational vehicle waste dump station located in Logansport’s Spencer Park will be permanently closed by the end of February 2024.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has notified Logansport’s Parks & Recreation Department and Logansport Utilities that regulations outlined in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit require monitoring of the RV waste dump station to prevent hazardous chemicals or prohibited substances from creating a safety
hazard. Without the monitoring, the dump station must be closed to remain in compliance.

Logansport Utilities will be excavating the dump station location to permanently seal off the cap with concrete underground, eliminating connection and access to sewer lines. A traffic notice for High Street will be released when work is expected to begin. The dump station will be eliminated before February 29, 2024.
