Comprising almost 1,000 miles of sanitary sewer lines with over 450 of them on easements and outfalls, our wastewater collection system is built and maintained to ensure public health and protect our environment.

More than 25,000 sanitary sewer manholes serve as access points to perform routine maintenance and respond to emergencies such as sanitary sewer overflows. Manholes are located in public streets, right-of-ways and on easements. We comply with our collection system permit by inspecting our entire system annually and cleaning 10 percent of the main lines as required by North Carolina law.
