About the Utility Department


UTILITY_1
Water and sewer services are provided through the Utilities department.  The department employs 33 people and is organized internally into a separate water system and sewer system.  The city operates and maintains its own water distribution and treatment facilities and wastewater/sewerage collection treatment facilities.

The system is managed by the Superintendent of Operations and the Superintendent of Administration, both positions appointed by the Mayor, subject to City Council approval.  The Utilities department of Operations is organized internally into two areas managed by two Assistant Superintendents, one of whom manages the water plant with the other managing the sewer plant.  Administrative matters for the Utilities department are managed by the Superintendent of Administration.  Both the water and sewer plants are operated under the supervision of licensed and certified operators pursuant to state requirements.
