Collections
The sewer collections staff perform numerous tasks to keep the sanitary and storm sewer systems working properly. They maintain the sanitary sewer lift stations on a regular basis to reduce pump failures. They also remove debris and roots from the sewer systems using a jet-vacuum truck. The jet-vacuum truck uses a stream of high pressure water to clean debris from sewer lines. The debris is then removed from manholes using the vacuum portion of the truck. The sewer lines are also televised using a closed circuit televising system to determine if maintenance or repairs are necessary.

Flood Conditions
During flooding conditions, the collections staff operate the storm sewer isolation structures to reduce the potential of storm water backing up into streets.

Emergency Sewer Calls
The collections staff responds to emergency sewer calls and lift station alarms 24/7. They may be reached at 605-882-6244, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. On weekends, holidays, and between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 a.m., please contact the Police Department at 605-882-6210.
