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
