Safer Collection and Transmission of Wastewater

The Sewer Division is made up of three (3) employees who are responsible for the maintenance of the collection system’s sewer mains, lift stations, and grinder pumps. Our goal is to provide for safe collection and transmission of wastewater through the City’s underground sewer mains to protect public safety, health and the environment. The City of Brandon has thirty-three (33) lift stations used to pump wastewater and transport it to the West Rankin Utility Authority to be treated.

Do’s and Don’ts of Grinders
