Municipal storm and sanitary sewers

The City of Peterborough maintains storm and sanitary sewers. The sanitary sewage system is made up of a series of pipes, maintenance holes and pumping stations. The system collects wastewater from the plumbing systems of buildings. We treat the water at the Wastewater Treatment Plant before returning it to the Otonabee River.
