LEARN ABOUT WASTEWATER
Learn about wastewater, centralized sewer system, and why the Unified Southern Sarpy Wastewater System is vital for Sarpy County's growth.
What is wastewater?
Wastewater is water that has been used in the home, in a business, or as part of an industrial process. It is necessary to have a system to remove wastewater safely from a developed area.
What is a centralized sewer system?
Centralized systems are public sewer systems. They treat wastewater in a single, centralized location. Sewers collect municipal wastewater from homes, businesses, and industries and deliver it to a treatment plant for processing. After wastewater is treated, it is reused or discharged to surface water or ground water. It is necessary for development to have an efficient sewer system.
Why is the sewer system necessary for Sarpy County?
Right now, Sarpy County is cut in half by a ridgeline. Development has been hindered due to a lack of a sewer system structure on the southern part of the ridgeline. The SCCWWA is developing a sewer system.
