Sanitary Sewer Questions & Concerns
Think Trash - Not Toilets! We are experiencing high volumes of non-flushable items in our pump stations and need your help to keep your sewer system functioning properly. View documents relating to pump stations:

Report Anyone Removing or Dumping Anything into a Manhole
Just as it is illegal to dump material along the roadside, it is illegal to dump anything into a public sewer system. Please call 911 if you see any suspicious activity while it's happening so the police can respond as quickly as possible!
To keep everything working properly and extend service life of City facilities, regular maintenance is scheduled throughout the year along the public streets and ditches. As with all things, emergencies will happen, and in those instances project priorities may need to be adjusted. If you have any questions about the City's maintenance schedule, please email Public Works Director Jeremy Metzler.
Drainage District 21
The City of Edgewood worked with the Drainage District 21 (DD21) commissioners in 2020 to assume maintenance and operations responsibility for all DD21 facilities inside the City. For more information see Resolutions no. 20.0504, and 20.0513 found here as well as the DD21 Resolution for withdrawal from the City of Edgewood, and the Declaration on Perspective Easements. Edgewood is in the process of requesting easements from several properties, with the goal of executing agreements with willing owners by summer 2021.
Following a competitive bid process, the City recently hired Sound Native Plants, Inc. to perform this year's maintenance, and they are tentatively scheduled to begin their work on June 1st, 2021. Here is a map of the DD21 area, highlighting the channels to be maintained, and the Hydraulic Project Approval (HPA) issued by the State covering this work can be downloaded here.
If City Hall is closed, please call 911 to report spills and dangerous stormwater pollution.
