Moline’s Water Pollution Control Division provides continuous and essential sanitary sewer service to the homes and businesses of Moline, and portions of neighboring communities. Our collection system team operates and maintains the extensive network of buried sewer mains and pumping stations that receive and transport wastewater discharges from our customers to our two wastewater treatment plants. Our treatment operations team is responsible for the operation and maintenance of these treatment facilities.

Sanitary Sewer System

Moline’s sanitary sewer system is operated as a public utility enterprise fund. No tax dollars, in any form, are used to fund the sanitary sewer system. All funds, revenues and expenditures associated with its operation are segregated from other City finances. The current annual sewer system budget is about $7.5 million dollars. The revenue that supports this budget is derived solely from the fees charged for sanitary sewer services.
