  • Our wastewater infrastructure consists of 260 miles of sewer mains, 20,500 service connections, 5,600 manholes and cleanouts, fourteen sewer lift stations and 58 sewer conveyance basins.  The District’s F.O.G. (fats, oils, and grease) program ensures compliance with wastewater discharge standards and regulations of the applicable agency.

Ensuring your water quality.

Helping you know what to do when problems happen.
