Maintenance of the city’s sewer system and the proper processing of wastewater is provided through the Sewer Division. Management of wastewater is vital for the health of the community and a sound environment.
In Dallas, wastewater from more than 15,000 people and numerous businesses travels through more than 66 miles of sewer pipes to the Water Reclamation Facility (WRF). The Division maintains these lines through routine maintenance and annual pipe replacement projects.
The WRF is managed under a contract with Jacobs Engineering with oversight by the Engineering and Environmental Services Division.
