What is wastewater (sanitary sewer)?

Wastewater or sewage is the byproduct of many uses of water such as showering, dishwashing, laundry and flushing the toilet. After the water has been used, it enters the household’s wastewater pipeline and after it connects to the District’s main wastewater pipeline, the wastewater flows to the Lone Tree Creek Water Reclamation Facility where it is treated.
