The Holland Board of Public Works maintains all of the sanitary sewer collection system south of Lake Macatawa and the Macatawa River. This system contains nearly 190 miles of sanitary sewer pipe and 34 sewage lift stations. It is located mostly within the City of Holland, but also includes portions of Park, Laketown, Fillmore and Holland Charter Township. The majority of the system is 8-inch pipe with some pipes as large as 36-inches. The system is a separated system meaning that surface drainage is collected into a system known as the storm sewers and drains and the sewage from homes and businesses go into a separate system known as the sanitary sewer system.
Below is a picture of our crews working on cleaning a sewer line at 9th & Lincoln with our Vactor truck.
The sanitary sewer system is maintained by numerous highly skilled and qualified individuals on a daily basis.
Penn State Public Broadcasting produced an excellent public education documentary regarding our water and sewer infrastructure. You are encouraged to look for it on our local cable access channel.
