The York City Sewer Maintenance department is responsible for the maintenance and repair of over 520,000 linear feet of sewer lines located within the City. The sewer system is a critical component in the operations of the York City WWTP. The system conveys the wastewater generated by sewer users in the City, and portions of seven (7) other municipalities, to the WWTP for treatment.
A properly maintained sewer system is required to convey the contaminated wastewater from the users in our community to treatment in a manner that protects human health and the environment. Blockages in the sewer system cause sewage overflows and unsanitary living conditions for the users.
The maintenance of sewers includes the cleaning and televising of sewer lines, and repairs to mains, laterals, and manholes. The department is also responsible for the maintenance of the City’s five flood pump stations. The Sewer Maintenance department provides PA One call markings for underground sanitary and storm sewer utilities within the City.
The staff includes one Supervisor, four Wastewater Collection Operator 2s and two Wastewater Collection Operator 1s.
