What happens to the waste water in Canton?
The Sanitary sewer system within Canton is continuously changing as development progresses. The sanitary flow from the community flows to a regional collection and pumping system operated by the Western Township’s Utilities Authority (WTUA). From this facility, the flows are directed accordingly to the DWSD waste water treatment facility and to the Ypsilanti communities waste water treatment facility. Design considerations must be examined when a modification to the existing system is proposed. The sanitary sewer master plan and future land use map serve as a guidance tool to determine what design factors must be addressed. By using these 2 guides, a correct design can be established which will ensure proper transport of the community’s sanitary waste.
