What is a sanitary sewer system?
The sanitary sewer system consists of all public structures (pipes, lift stations, sewer lines and manholes) within the collection system and is designed to carry municipal sewage to the wastewater treatment plant. If a pipe conveys water which needs to be treated, it is a sanitary sewer.
