It is also the goal of this department is to provide quality service, expand and maintain a wastewater system that will be sanitary and adequate through an effective construction and maintenance program.

Finally creating and maintaining a (FOG) Fats, Oils and Grease program to decrease the amount of SSO (Sanitary Sewer Overflows) in the system.
