Wastewater

Our Wastewater Department currently has 1 member with a grade 4 wastewater certification, 1 member with a grade II wastewater certification and 1 member with a grade 1 wastewater certification. We have 2 members with a commercial pesticide applicator license for spraying mosquitoes and 1 member with a commercial pesticide applicator license for spraying weeds. 

Keeping Plumbing Clear
  • Do not put grease down the drain (sewer backups and clogged drains can be caused by grease buildup).
  • If you smell sewer gas and have a floor drain, put some water in the drain. During the winter, the water will evaporate from the trap.
  • It's against City Code to have sump pumps discharge to the sewer system.
Our department takes care of the collection system by using a jet truck that also has a vacuum unit on it. The Wastewater department also completes the maintenance of the levee, which is inspected yearly by the Army Corp of Engineers; and the old City Landfill, which is inspected yearly by EPA.
