Water and Wastewater Departments

The Water and Waste Water Departments maintain the City's water and waste water systems so that a continued supply of drinkable water is furnished to water customers at the most reasonable cost, and the sanitary sewer is handled in a safe and cost effective manner.

These departments are responsible for providing maintenance and repairs to the City's sanitary sewer lift station system, sewers, and manholes. We maintain all storm sewer lines and storm inlets to assure adequate run-off, and monitors creeks and ditches to control storm water, weeds, and pollution.
