The City currently maintains approximately 140 miles of sanitary sewer mains, 17 miles of force mains, 3,100+ manholes, approximately 56 miles of laterals (right-of-way service lines to homes), and 47 lift stations.
The City also has a Television and Seal Truck to visually inspect the sanitary sewer mains, while in use and with no disruption to service. This equipment allows the City to take a proactive approach to prevent damage caused by deterioration/age or by installation of other utilities that could potentially cause sewer back-ups and/or road failures.
The City has state-of-the-art equipment such as a radio-based Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System which provides the Citizens of Dunedin with 24 hour telemetry monitoring of each lift station. This allows us to monitor the status of each lift station to help avert any sanitary sewer spills into the streets or back-ups into homes.
To provide for the health, safety, and welfare of the community through the performance of effective collection and treatment of wastewater in compliance with City, State, and Federal regulations in an efficient manner while providing superior customer service and maintaining cost controls.
