Sewer Collection - Our team is responsible for maintaining Hayward's network of sewer collection pipelines and wastewater lift stations. Learn more about where your wastewater goes after you wash, shower, and flush.
Wastewater Treatment - Our team uses biological and environmentally friendly processes to clean Hayward's wastewater before discharging it into the bay or reusing it for industrial purposes. We use biogas created in this process to power City facilities! Learn more about the treatment process.
