The objective of the Sewer Division is to operate, maintain, expand, clean and repair the sanitary sewer trunk line system, lift stations and pumps. In addition, this division is responsible for inspection of all services to insure that installation of the sewer facilities is in conformance with the city's plans and specifications before they are accepted for public use and maintenance.

The Wastewater Division operates and maintains the city’s wastewater treatment facilities. This includes not only the physical maintenance on several expensive treatment structures, such as lift stations, sedimentation tanks, digesters, filters, pumps and control buildings, but also performing numerous laboratory analyses on domestic and industrial waste samples. It is very important that treatment of wastewater be carefully controlled and the equipment maintained to insure compliance with the discharge requirements set by the State Regional Water Quality Control Board. The Sewer and Wastewater Divisions operate under the direction of the Board of Public Utilities.
