Sewer Collection Department


The collection system for Valley Sanitary District consists of approximately 240 miles of sanitary sewer pipes and 4 pump stations. This intricate network of pipes exists to ensure the wastewater flushed every day from homes and industries flows to our wastewater treatment plant without a problem.

The Sewer Collections department employs a proactive maintenance and cleaning program to prevent blockages, caused by tree roots and cooking grease, from occurring. You may have seen our Vactor sewer cleaning truck or TV van working in your neighborhood. We also inspect the inside of sewer pipes with a close circuit video camera to look for any broken pipes that may cause a sewerage overflow.

If you ever suspect that sewer may be overflowing onto the ground, call the District at (760) 238-5400.  Twenty four hours a day, seven days a week (24/7)
