The Engineering Division of the Middletown Water and Sewer Department is the source for technical information regarding the City’s water and sewer systems. It is our goal to provide the highest professional service possible to our customers.
Engineering employees include licensed professional engineers, an analyst, inspectors and a licensed electrician. Some of our responsibilities include reviewing site plans, issuing water and sewer permits, issuing FOG permits (fats, oils and grease), inspecting the installation of water and sewer utilities, dam inspections, managing our leak detection program, electrical and alarm system maintenance, and managing capital improvement projects.
The Department also maintains and updates the mapping and plans for all the City owned water and sewer mains and facilities in Middletown. Our inspectors use these to locate utilities in the field as part of the “Call Before You Dig” program. This program is designed to avoid accidental damage to our water and sewer pipes by contractors and others. Engineering also collects data, works closely with consultants and conducts studies to help determine where future improvements may be needed in order to keep the water and sewer system in good working order.
The Middletown Water and Sewer Department plans to use American Recovery Plan funding to remove inflow and infiltration storm water from our sanitary sewer system. This clean water has to be pumped and treated which increases operating costs and our rates. Please do your part to help identify and remove roof drains and sump pumps from your sanitary sewer drain line. Please contact us with any questions.
