Water, Sewage, and Stormwater Components
As part of its overall system, MUB manages an extensive network of water, sewer, and storm facilities.
The water system is comprised of 390 miles of pipe ranging up to 24 inch in diameter. It has 38 storage tanks with a combined capacity of more than 21 million gallons, serving 19 pressure zones. Each pressure zone is independently mastered metered.
The sanitary sewer system is comprised of 300 miles of gravity sewer pipe ranging up to 60 inches in diameter. Much of the sewer system is combined (receiving both sanitary wastes and stormwater), and there are 40 regulated CSO’s (Combined Sewer Overflows). The system also has 49 sewage pumping stations, with force mains ranging up to 16 inches in diameter.
The storm sewer system includes 105 miles of storm pipe of varying sizes and shapes, and nearly 4000 inlets. It also includes an undetermined number and length of ditches and streams which combine with the hard infrastructure to provide a complete storm network.
