Wastewater Collection

  1. Wastewater is discharged from homes and businesses into underground collection system pipes.
  2. Wastewater flows by gravity through the collection system to the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
  3. Manholes are located throughout the collection system for easy access to underground pipes for maintenance and repairs.
  4. Sewer lift stations are used throughout the system to pump wastewater through higher elevations to points where gravity can once again be used.
  5. Wastewater from the collection system piping discharges into the wastewater treatment plants.
