Sewers

The City of Clive has two sewer separate systems -- sanitary and storm.  They are both closed, separate systems.

Sanitary
is for removing waste to a wastewater treatment plant.

Storm
is for carrying rainfall out to our natural waterways such as Walnut Creek (which eventually reaches the Raccoon River).

These two systems were not designed to handle paint remover, grass clippings, motor oil, and other common hazardous household wastes. Report illegal dumping of this type of waste by calling Clive Public Works weekdays between 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at (515) 223-6231 and WestCom all other days and times (515) 222-3321. For more information on this type of code violation, visit our Illegal Dumping webpage.
