Preparation - Wastewater

The City of Dunedin’s Wastewater Department suggests to do the following before/after/during a storm:

  • Make sure your cleanout caps are snug and secure so sewer cannot escape.
  • Stay out of the water in the streets! Although it is not wastewater, that water is full of bacteria!
  • Conserve water when possible. Even if your power is on and you’re able to use every facility in your house- please think twice as the Wastewater Treatment Plant is already treating extra water from the storm!
  • If you see any open manholes, manholes with shifted lids, or manholes without lids- notify the Wastewater Department as soon as possible.
  • In Dunedin, Wastewater and Stormwater are separate collection systems, discharging to different places. Find each department’s contact information below:
