The City maintains two wastewater treatment facilities and a collection system to provide sewer services to the residents and businesses within the City. Currently there are approximately 1,050 customers generating about 0.45 million gallons of sewage a day (MGD) during dry periods with nearly double this amount collected during wet weather periods. The cost for this service is set by Council resolution and is intended to cover the cost of acquisition, construction, reconstruction, administration, maintenance and operation of the system, and to provide for the timely payment of principal and interest on any outstanding debt obligation. The City issued bonds for the construction of wastewater improvements in 1977. These bonds will be fully repaid in 40 years, or 2018.
