The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services. Our sanitary sewer system includes 81 pump stations, 1,367 miles of sewer line and two large wastewater treatment plants: Town Branch and West Hickman. Our stormwater management programs encompass the design, review, construction and inspection of stormwater infrastructure and establish stormwater runoff control and flood mitigation projects.
In addition to maintaining the sanitary sewer and stormwater systems, the Division of Water Quality cooperates with local community groups and other divisions of the Urban County Government to provide opportunities for the public and local businesses to participate in improving water quality for our community. These events include Reforest the Bluegrass and the Great American Clean-Up, among others.
