OUR HISTORY

At creation, the Sarpy County and Cities Wastewater Agency was tasked with the construction and maintenance of a wastewater system in the southern part of Sarpy County.

 

Today, community leaders, engineers, contractors, and funding parties engage through cooperation, collaboration, and support, growing and flowing towards the goals of infrastructure and economic development.

The Sarpy County Wastewater Agency was formed in 2017 to build a sanitary sewer system in the southern region of Sarpy County.

The county is cut in half by a ridge line. The area south of this land mass could not be built on until now. 

 

The SCCWWA, consisting of Sarpy County and the cities of Bellevue, Papillion, La Vista, Gretna and Springfield, signed an agreement with the City of Omaha in 2020 to treat the region’s wastewater.

Today, community leaders, engineers, contractors, and funding parties engage through cooperation, collaboration, and support, growing and flowing towards the goals of infrastructure and economic development.

Completion and delivery of this sewer line is the largest economic development opportunity in and for the state of Nebraska for the next two decades.

Commercial, residential and industrial development are expected to generate more than $37 billion in net new spending, $24 billion in net new earnings, and approximately 4,740 new full-time equivalent jobs over the next 30 years.
