Waste Water Collection - Equalization Basin

The mission of the Pacifica Sanitary Sewer Collection System Division is to prolong the life of the collection system infrastructure and transport waste to point of treatment without disruption or overflows, while meeting the needs of citizens in the service area and all federal, state and local regulations in a cost-efficient manner.

The City of Pacifica employs ten technicians to maintain and operate the collection system. Some of their responsibilities include cleaning and repairing wastewater mains and laterals, televising and recording the condition of the sanitary sewer, performing maintenance on pumps and motors at the lift stations, inspecting private plumbing construction and providing information to the public. These individuals have the responsibility of preventing damage to the community's environment from pollution caused by sanitary sewer overflows.

If you have questions regarding replacement of your sewer lateral or if you are in need of an inspection, please contact Doug Trade by email or by calling (650) 738-7472.

**NOTE: The Council item and discussion of the Equalization Feasibility Study and possible site locations for the Equalization Basin has been removed from the City Council Meeting Agenda for July 13th, and will be moved to the City Council Meeting in the future.
