In a consolidated appeal from various complaints by property owners against a sewer district, the Court of Appeal’s in Wagler v. West Boggs Sewer District, Inc., held that the sewer district was allowed to compel Members of an Old Order Amish to connect to its sewer system, pursuant to Indiana Code section 8-1-2-125(d). Importantly, the resistors had entered into an agreed entry, which required them to connect onto the sewer line. Only after they made this agreement did they cite religious objections to use of this public utility.
