The City of Ocean Springs maintains a sewer system that is capable of collecting and transporting 7 mpg (millions per gallon/per day). We manage and operate this system through a series of sewer mains and numerous pumping stations.
Our sewage is pumped to the Jackson County Utility Authority whereby it is transported 7 miles north to a land treatment facility that dispenses the wastewater over a wide surface area. Because of this, there is no direct discharge of City sewer into any of our waterways.
The Public Works Sewer Department is responsible for installing sewer taps for all residential and commercial construction in the City of Ocean Springs.

Please be advised that this is only a guide and a formal request for fees must be made to the Public Works Department.
