Sewer Maintenance Mission Statement
To systematically clean existing sanitary and storm sewers to maximize capacity and to reduce the backlog and overall cost of repair and maintenance.

Sewer Division Goals and Objectives
The Department of Public Works maintains a fleet of equipment and requires staff to provide routine and specialized cleaning of the City's 942 miles of sanitary sewers and 529 miles of storm sewers.  The timely cleaning of the City's sewers reduces the potential for blockages and subsequent damage to private and public property. 

The Department of Public Works utilizes existing personnel and equipment to perform in-house construction of mid-range stormwater related projects.
