The Piqua sewer system is a separated system consisting of both sanitary wastewater and stormwater collection piping. The existing sanitary wastewater collection system has a service area of approximately 5500 acres. The system consists of approximately 120 miles of sewers, ranging in size between 5″ and 42″ in diameter pipe. Seven (7) wastewater lift pump stations are located in the City’s collections system. Additional sanitary wastewater flows come from outside the City limits, those flows being the Village of Fletcher, the Piqua Country Club, Monnin Estates, The Greens at Springcreek, the Villages of Springcreek, and the I-75 Roadside rest area.
The plant operation is affected by the amount of the wastewater flow collected by the sewers. Completion of the sewer system rehabilitation program will eliminate inflow defects, which currently contribute to higher then normal wastewater flows during storm events.
The Underground Utilities Department is in charge of maintenance and repairs in the collections system. If you need service from this department please contact Shane Johnson, Superintendent at 937-778-2018.
