SS Home Page Kansas City’s overall sanitary sewer system spans nearly 318 square miles of combined and separate sewer systems, some of which is over 50, 100, even 150 years old. Due to age and the forces of nature, our system is failing and must be updated and replaced. In 2010, the City entered into a Consent Decree with the United States Environmental Protection Agency to reduce the volume and frequency of overflows from the Kansas City’s sewer system.

KC Water's Smart Sewer program is a 25-year, $4.5 billion plan to address this challenge. The program helps protect our community’s environment by reducing the amount of stormwater entering our sewer system, which will lessen the frequency of sewer overflows and basement backups in your neighborhood. When complete, the collection system throughout our community will be restored to like-new condition. The Smart Sewer program is…

…our plan and promise to fix Kansas City’s aging and overflowing sewer infrastructure; it represents the largest infrastructure project and investment in the City’s history.

…the efficient, innovative materials and technology we’re using to make improvements and repairs that will last a lifetime — all while keeping the cost to ratepayers as low as possible.
