The Wastewater Collection Division maintains and repairs over 150 miles of sanitary sewer lines, more than 1,600 manholes and 14 lift-stations.

Please do your part to keep our sewer lines flowing by making sure that nothing inappropriate is flushed down the toilet or poured down the drain. View the "It's a Toilet, Not a Trashcan" pamphlet for more information.


The Wastewater Collection Division takes a proactive approach to employee and customer safety, enacting policies and procedures aimed at preventing accidents before they happen. Some of the measures include:
  • Testing for gases and ventilating confined spaces, such as manholes, prior to entering
  • Requiring additional personnel and retrieval systems on site before workers enter manholes
  • Shoring excavation sites more than five feet deep with trench boxes to prevent cave-ins
