Sewer Maintenance: Residents of Manitou Springs are connected to the City of Manitou Springs’ sewer system. Public Services’ Sewer Division maintains the City’s sewer mains.  Residents and business owners are responsible for maintenance of their private sewer service lines from the sewer main to the building structure.  North Dakota State University (NDSU) created a brochure with a number of options to prevent sewer backflow into structures.  We encourage all residents to read NDSU's brochure by clicking here (7MB pdf).

Sewer & Water Upgrades: In mid-2009, Manitou Springs received federal funding through the ARRAExternal link and other sources to upgrade over 4 1/2 miles of waterline piping and 3 1/3 miles of wastewater piping. This is the largest utility upgrade in the history of Manitou. The project began in September of 2009 and was completed in September 2011.
