S.T.E.P. Septic Tank Effluent Pumped

This department oversees the installation and maintenance of the sewer systems currently in three subdivisions in Lowell: Tuscan Heights , Weatherton , and Meadowlands.

These are called Decentralized Waste Water Treatment Systems. There is a septic tank at each residence with a pump that sends the water only, to a waste water treatment plant. The water (effluent) is then treated and dispersed into the ground thru a drip irrigation system.

The goal of this department is to collect, treat and dispose of waste from these systems in an environmentally friendly and cost effective method while staying in compliance with all local, state and federal laws, and regulations.
 


Storm water

Storm water is water that originates during precipitation events. Such as rain, snow, hail, ect.. Storm water that does not soak into the ground becomes surface run off. This water either flows directly into surface waterways (creeks, lakes) or is channeled into storm drains, and ditches which eventually carries the water into water ways that discharge into rivers and lakes where we get our drinking water. This water is entering our streams and lakes untreated; therefore we need to take measures to prevent this water from getting contaminated.

It is the goal of this department to maintain the cities storm water permit in compliance with all local, state and federal laws, and to keep our waters of the state safe and clean for generations to come.

Common contaminates include but are not limited to:
Fertilizers, pesticides, fluids from leaky cars and equipment, sediments from construction and exposed dirt, litter and debris, pet waste
 

There are things, we can do as individuals, to help keep our water clean and safe for generations to come,
here are a few:

Properly dispose of house hold chemicals
Keep garbage cans covered
Keep grass and yard waste out of gutters
Recycle and compost when you can
Use proper BMP's on construction sites
Repair leaking automobiles and equipment

The City of Lowell is obligated under law to try and keep our water resources uncontaminated, there are rules and regulations that we all must adhere to:
