CWSS -- Water Distribution and Sewer Collection
Mission
Our mission is to deliver clean, safe drinking water to your home or business and to remove wastewater through proper and efficient maintenance of the sanitary sewer collection system.   

Overview
The CWSS Department reads 4,000 water and electric meters remotely with radio-read technology.  The radio-read capabilities were completed for water meters and only commercial meters remain for the electric department. 

A uni-directional flushing program is completed annually to flush the distribution system and exercise each valve.  In 2013, we will begin a program to clean and televise approximately 12 miles of the city's sewer collection system each year until we reach 100% completion.  Sewer issues in other areas will be cleaned out on an as-needed basis. 

Foundation Drain Program
Foundation drains allow groundwater to enter the sanitary sewer when they are connected to sewer laterals.  The city encourages residents to remove foundation drains from sewer lateral to help reduce wastewater treatment operating cost.  Homes built prior to 1975 with basements are most likely to have these types of connection. The city is currently offering a free removal program to disconnect the drains and install a sump pump in these types of residences.  For more information and to see if you qualify, please use the links below for further information.
