What is the difference between Sanitary Sewer and Storm Sewer?
Collects wastewater leaving your home or business such as: toilet water, shower, washing machine, dishwasher, etc…
Storm Sewer (storm drain):
Is the grate in the street at the curb that collects rainwater. It is very important not to throw trash and/or chemicals down the storm drain as they discharge directly into our creeks and streams.
In Hamilton, the sanitary sewer and the storm drain systems are not combined.
