What is the collection system?
The collection system for the City of LaPorte consists of approximately 31 miles of sanitary sewer pipes and 69 miles of combined sanitary sewer / stormwater pipes. This intricate network of pipes and lift stations exists to make sure that the wastewater that gets flushed everyday from the homes and industries of La Porte makes it way to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to be properly cleaned and treated before it is recycled back into the environment.
