An effective sanitary sewer collection and treatment system is essential to the safety and well being of citizens in St. Cloud and all other cities. Our Line Systems Division and Treatment Division take great care to operate an effective sanitary sewer collection and treatment system that results in a high quality effluent that can be returned to the environment without adverse impact. In fact, when wastewater is reused as reclaim water, it protects the environment by helping to conserve water. Also, effective sanitary sewer systems help minimize the need for septic tanks, which cannot achieve the same level of highly effective treatment provided by our treatment plants and operators.
