Clean Gravity Sewer Pipe
Gravity sewer lines are cleaned using eleven (11) sewer cleaner trucks and City crews to remove grease and debris. They are cleaned on a seven (7) year cycle. The City of Tampa has 1600 miles of gravity sewer lines and 100,000+ active sewer accounts to provide service to a population of 527,000 citizens.
Note: The Wastewater Department spent two weeks on issues related to Hurricane Irma which contributed to lower than usual numbers.
