Wastewater Collection is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the underground gravity collection system and the force main piping systems that receive and transmit wastewater discharged from homes and businesses to the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Programs include preventive maintenance, chemical applications, root control, cleaning, and closed circuit television inspections of gravity sewer mains. The utility locating crew provides support for utility locations reducing the potential for service interruptions resulting from construction activities.
