septic tankThe City’s Wastewater Collection System consists of approximately 178 miles of main sewer lines ranging in sizes from 6” to 18”. Access to the collection system is provided with 2,774 manhole access locations. All City sewage is transferred to Eastern Municipal Water District’s treatment plant.

storm drain cleaning“Only Rain Down the Drain”
The Storm Drain Department System was built to collect and transport rain to prevent flooding along City streets and neighborhoods. When rainwater runs off of streets, parking lots, lawns and other surfaces, it enters gutters and storm drains, which lead directly to bodies of water, not treatment plants. The City’s Storm Drain department works diligently to ensure that storm drain systems are clear of debris to avoid pollution and flooding.

road construction signThe Streets Department of Public Works maintains the public roadways throughout City limits with the exception of Highway 79 (San Jacinto Avenue), which is maintained by CalTrans. Maintenance work performed by the Streets Division includes small road repairs like pothole filling, crack sealing, and small paving jobs. The division also repairs curb and gutter and sidewalk areas, as well as, restriping City streets and replaces street legends and signs.
