Sewer Collection Maintenance

The sewer collection system is maintained by three full-time Wastewater employees assisted by cross-trained Street and Wastewater departments personnel. They work to maintain sanitary sewers, clean storm lines and lift stations, and various other jobs.  Their main equipment is a vac truck to clean and vacuum out sewer lines and manholes.  Another asset is a camera capable of driving through sewer lines as small as 8 inches and recording any problem areas.

Why do the sewers need inspected and cleaned?  To keep the sewer system operating properly; help prevent blockages and backups; remove debris such as roots, sand and trash; and evaluate where repairs need to be made.

The Town notifies residents with door hangers when sewer maintenance equipment will be in your neighborhood. A white box truck houses a remote sewer camera used to televise the sewers and manholes. A large purple tank truck that has nozzles and devices that jets water, cuts roots, and vacuums out debris.

In order for the collection personnel to maintain our sewers, they need access to sanitary manholes. Please don't landscape over or around any manhole on your property. Our personnel may need access to these structures at any time, day or night.
