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, over 1400 miles of sewer pipe, and two large wastewater treatment plants (Town Branch and West Hickman).

Water Quality also manages the city’s storm sewer system by implementing its Stormwater Quality Management Program and by constructing capital projects to repair or replace broken or undersized pipes and conduits that are causing flooding problems.  

Additionally, Water Quality works with community groups and other LFUCG divisions to provide opportunities for the public and local businesses to improve water quality for the community. We manage the Stormwater Incentive Grant Program to provide funding for businesses, schools and neighborhoods to undertake stormwater infrastructure and education projects. We are also involved with events that help improve water quality such as Reforest the Bluegrass and the Great American Clean Up
