The duties of the wastewater staff include: maintenance of the collection system and treatment plant, handling customer complaints and problems and monitoring water quality and effectiveness of treatment.

Wastewater Bulletins and Tips Sewer Backups- Please Call Us FirstIf you experience problems with plugged or slow moving drains please call the Buena Vista Sewer Department (989) 755-4819, before calling a drain cleaning service. Our staff will visit your residence and determine if the problem is due to your plumbing or a plugged sewer main. If the sewer main is plugged the sewer department will have the line cleaned. If the problem is in your plumbing our staff will advise you to contact a drain cleaning service. By following this procedure residents will avoid any unnecessary expenses.
Grease – A Sticky Problem Disposing of grease and cooking oil by dumping it down the drain creates numerous problems for residents and the Township alike. Grease is best disposed of by storing it in a container and after the container is full and cooled, depositing it in the trash. Grease can melt piping and clog sewer lines creating big expenses for residents. When grease accumulates in sewer mains backups often occur, making costly maintenance necessary. By keeping grease out of the sewer system we can minimize costs to both our residents and the Township.
