KUB works hard to maintain and upgrade our wastewater system to prevent sewer overflows. Our PACE 10 program, for example, helped reduce the number of overflows significantly.
We use a coordinated mix of tools to address overflows. They include ongoing maintenance programs, construction projects to rehabilitate or replace pipes, and wet weather wastewater storage.
Despite our best efforts, however, overflows still occur, especially during heavy rainfall. Visit our SSO Log for a list of any recent overflows and their cleanup status. For a history of overflows, visit our archives.
