The City's Sanitary Sewer Program maintains nearly 275 miles of sanitary sewer collection system pipeline and 11 Sanitary Sewer Lift Stations. The effective maintenance of the infrastructure contributes to a clean, safe and sanitary environment for residents businesses, and visitors to the City, and overall health of the region.

Effective management of a collection system includes:

  • Minimizing the number and impact of sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs);
  • Providing adequate sewer capacity to convey peak flows, and
  • Maintaining and improving the condition of the collection system infrastructure to provide reliable service into the future

The sanitary sewer overflow records are maintained in accordance with State of California Water Resources Control Board, GWDR Order 2006-0003-DWQ
