Waste Water Department
The Water Pollution Control Department is responsible for the Wastewater Treatment Plants and the Sanitary Sewer Collection System. The City of Centerville has two treatment plants, the East Plant and the West Plant. Together they process an average daily flow of 750,000 gallons. The Water Pollution Control Department staff also maintains approximately 40 miles of sanitary sewer main, 730 manholes, and 6 lift stations.
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources has recently mandated the city to eliminate sanitary sewer overflows within the collection system. This project will include rehabilitating or replacing over 32 miles of sanitary sewer pipe and over 700 manholes. The project must be completed by 2012 and will cost over $6,000,000. The city will use CWSRF loans, USDA Rural Development grants and loans, and Iowa DED Community Development Block Grants to assist in funding the project.
