Runoff collected in drains from rain and other precipitation is known as storm sewage. Both sanitary and stormwater sewage are collected within the city’s sewage system and transported to the wastewater treatment plant. The waste water department must then treat and dispose of it in accordance with environmental regulations and city and state ordinances. The waste water department must monitor the amount of incoming waste and adjust their practices to attempt to accommodate the needs of the city, and monitor and maintain the sewage system that allows waste to travel to the waste water treatment plant, to ensure the safety of the citizens of Niles.
