Sewer (City Of Manteca)
The City of Manteca operates and maintains approximately 250 miles of sanitary sewer mains and the City of Manteca Wastewater Quality Control Facility (WQCF). The WQCF is a tertiary treatment Publicly Owned Treatment Works (POTW) that treats municipal sanitary sewage from the City of Manteca, portions of the City of Lathrop and Raymus Village, a subdivision in San Joaquin County. The WQCF delivers disinfected tertiary treated wastewater to the San Joaquin River, provides disinfected tertiary treated recycled water for construction purposes and uses undisinfected secondary treated wastewater for fodder crop irrigation. The WQCF treats up to 6.5 million gallons per day (MGD) of wastewater and is permitted to treat up to 9.87 MGD. The treatment plant is currently undergoing expansion to the solids handling streams to provide increased capacity to meet permit requirements and new State regulations. Included in these improvements are facilities for receiving Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG) and receiving food waste separated from our solid waste streams. The separation of these materials is required by State regulations and is anticipated to provide additional energy generation in the form of biogas, which can be used to fuel our Solid Waste Vehicle Fleet. Please feel free to contact the City of Manteca Public Works Department at (209) 456-8400 for more information regarding the WQCF. Please contact the Finance Department at (209) 456-8730 regarding questions about sewer rates and service requests.
