The Internal Audit Department released their audit report of the Wastewater Collection.

The City maintains the sanitary sewer system from the property line to the street, easement, or alley where the main sewer line is located. The Department's goal is to provide complete and cost-effective service and to respond rapidly to expanding service requirements.

Department personnel collect, treat, and dispose of more than 55 million gallons of wastewater per day from over 100,000 customers in Tampa and its immediate suburbs. Sanitary treatment requires the careful removal of pollutants and pathogens from wastewater in a manner consistent with Federal, state, and local regulations. Wastewater Collection, one of four Wastewater divisions, is charged with the construction, maintenance, repair, and replacement of wastewater pipelines.
