South Sioux City has a network of lift stations that pump the wastewater to the main lift station, which sends it along to the Sioux City treatment plant. The Sioux City treatment plant takes care of all of the City's wastewater. A new and larger pipeline has been put in place to take care of the wastewater more efficiently. This pipeline travels under the Missouri River to a lift station on the Sioux City side and from there to the treatment plant.
Questions are always asked, "Who is responsible for what?" The resident is responsible for the sewer line from the building to the main and includes all street repairs. If you are experiencing a sewer smell, a backup etc, call 494-7520 and someone will be dispatched to your residence. The City will jet out the main to help correct the problem, but remember the City is only responsible for the main.
For information on hook up fees and construction fees, please call utilities 494-7520.
