The Wastewater Department is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the wastewater collection and reclamation systems. Wastewater generated by customers throughout the City flows through gravity mains to a series of lift stations where it is pumped to the Reclamation Center. There is currently one “master” lift station which pumps directly to the Reclamation Center, and 14 lift stations which serve various subdivisions to convey wastewater to a “master” lift station. At the Water Reclamation Center, wastewater is processed in accordance with State and Federal regulations. Reclaimed water is discharged to Buffalo Bayou. Activities in this department include emergency response to stoppages, routine cleaning and inspection of mains, pump and valve maintenance, laboratory analysis, and 24/7 operations of the lift stations and Reclamation Center.
The City of Katy Public Works Department provides 24-hour emergency services. To report emergencies after normal business hours, weekends or holidays please call the Police Department at 281-391-4848 and the appropriate Public Works personnel will be contacted.
