Hopper Septic & Excavating is family owned and operated by Jeff Hopper. We are probably the oldest established and most respected septic and excavating contractor in Boone County. In 1952, Jeff’s dad, W. Earl Hopper, began doing backhoe work. He quickly expanded to sewer repair and installation. He also began to manufacture septic tanks after purchasing tank companies in Whitesville, Crawfordsville and Lebanon during the 1960s and early 1970s. The production of septic tanks by Hopper Septic & Excavating continued until mid-1980, at which point it became more cost efficient to purchase tanks from Indianapolis and focus our attention on our other services.
Septic, sewer work and excavating have been Jeff’s career for over 40 years. He began working with his father when he was a boy and began full-time work in 1973. Jeff purchased the business from his mother, Thelma, in 1985, after his father’s death. In 1988, Jeff and his wife Nancy moved the business from Earl and Thelma’s homestead north of Advance. Jeff and Nancy now operate Hopper Septic & Excavating from their farm, which is located 1 mile east of Advance.
Today, the family tradition continues as sons-in-law Jason Graham and Keith Cromwell have now been working in the family trade for over 10 years. Employee Jerry Elliott, who seems like another member of the family, has been with the company for 25 years.
At Hopper Septic & Excavating, we continue to strive to provide the most comprehensive septic and excavating services in Boone, Hendricks and the surrounding counties. We provide free estimates for your project and expect payment at the time of service, unless prior arrangements have been made.
