Water and Sewer


Waste Water Plant

The Waste Water Treatment Plant's hours of operation are 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. Daily and weekly checks are made of the water metering stations, the elevated storage tanks, and the sewage lift stations. Water samples from different locations are taken weekly to the Lake Michigan filtration plant for bacterial analysis. Once a year all of the  water valves are closed and reopened, as well as flushing and testing fire hydrants.

The daily work of the Public Utilities Department is divided between the water operations and sewer operations. The Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, and the Operators all have the ability to handle the responsibility for the entire water and sewer system if the need arose. This demands that all personnel be well trained. Some of their duties are to rebuild and maintain machinery and motors, repair and modify electrical circuits and controls, inspect water and sewer main construction, water meter installation and repair, water and wastewater lab analysis, and maintain buildings and grounds.
