The Office of Water Pollution Control is committed to operating and maintaining the Water Pollution Control Facility, the Sanitary Sewer Collection System, and Pumping Stations in a professional and efficient manner while at the same time meeting all State and Federal environmental compliance requirements.

For questions, or availability of staff to provide WPC approval on permits or certificates of occupancy, please call our office, between 8 a.m. - 12 p.m., Monday through Friday to schedule an appointment. Now that WPC has a security gate, access may not be granted to the WPC site beyond noon if you arrive without an appointment and staff is not available to meet with you.

What is F.O.G.? Fat, Oil & Grease buildup from restaurants and other commercial food preparers and homes are a common cause of sewer backups.  Fats, oils, and grease wash into the plumbing system and build up inside our sewer pipes.  Eventually, the buildup blocks the entire pipe, causing sewage backups and overflows.

Sewer Use: Unless otherwise specified, sewer use will be determined on the basis of annual meter consumption.  In the event that any City user of the sewer system wishes to be heard regarding its sewer user bill, such user shall make a detailed written request within two years from the date of issuance of the bill, to the Water Pollution Control Authority.
