Water Quality

The Division of Water Quality provides citizens of Lexington-Fayette County with wastewater treatment and stormwater management services. The city’s sanitary sewer system includes 81 pump stations, 1,367 miles of sewer line, and two large wastewater treatment plants (Town Branch and West Hickman). 

Water Quality also works with community groups and other LFUCG divisions to provide opportunities for the public and local businesses to participate in improving water quality for the community.  Some of these events include Reforest the Bluegrass and the Great American Clean-Up.
