|GARFIELD’S sanitary sewer system is made up of approximately 58 miles of main sewer line that services the entire City. The system conveys approximately 3.5 million gallons of wastewater per day to our regional treatment facility at the Passaic Valley Sewer Commission in Newark, New Jersey. The Sewer Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the entire system including equipment, manholes, and the maintenance and repair of all main lines within the sanitary system.
In addition to the sanitary sewer system the City also has the storm water sewer system. This system collects storm water run off from streets and sends it directly to streams, rivers and other open bodies of water. This water is not processed or filtered at any time. Storm drains are the responsibility of the Road Division.
The Sewer Division has a crew available five days per week between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:30 PM.
