The city has been testing and upgrading our sanitary sewer system over the past 10 years. We are taking action to address damaged pipes, improper private sewer construction, and illegal connections to the sewer that offer an easy route for storm water or other non-wastewater discharges to enter the sanitary sewer collection system. Non-wastewater flows entering the sanitary sewer collection system take up valuable capacity, which could potentially cause raw sewage spills, and cost extra money to treat and convey.
