Storm & Sanitary Sewer/ Hydrant Maintenance

Among the many services the City provides, the Sewer Maintenance Section is responsible for the 'hidden' services that we have all come to rely on as part of our daily lives whether at work or play.  The Sewer Maintenance Section is responsible for inspecting and repairing storm and sanitary sewers, opening stoppages and replacing sewer mains as need on a routine basis.  The City's sewer and drain collection system consists of separated and combined sewers.   The Sewer Section maintains 189 miles and of storm sewer, 240 miles of sanitary sewer and six (6) miles of combined sewer. Other functions of the Sewer Section are Hydrant Maintenance and repair, Best Management Practices and Inspections (BMPs), and catch basin maintenance and repair.  PWS uses a combination of Vactor Trucks, Jet Trucks, Flush Trucks, and CCTV Vans to inspect, maintain and clear pipes of any obstruction throughout the City.
