The Sewer Collections department employs a proactive scheduled preventative 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 are also proactively conducting a pipe assessment program of the district’s public sewer system, utilizing closed circuit video camera equipment.
The collection system for Valley Sanitary District consists of approximately 254 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.
If you suspect that Sanitary Sewer may be overflowing out into the public right of way, call the District's 24-hour hotline at (760) 238-5400.
