Technical Manual – Wastewater and Pump Station Facilities

HWU Staff has been working internally for about four years to revise and update our Technical Standards for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater, and changes to the Potable Water Manual were adopted in June 2016. We have now completed a review of the Wastewater and Pump Station Manual and have received approval.

Most of the updates are changes to methods to reflect how we actually do things, as well as adding part numbers we now use, and a lot of re-formatting. There are no changes in these standards that would add costs to a contractor or developer installing sewer lines or a pump station.

The revisions were forwarded to the Planning Commission for adoption at their meeting on 3 July 2018. This sector of City/County government has authority over construction standards, since KRS Chapter 100 under which the Henderson City-County Planning Commission is ordered contains provisions for subdivision regulations and specifications for physical improvements.

These new standards are now in effect.

A PDF file of the newly revised technical manual, as well as our other technical manuals, is available on the HWU website at the following link:

The Water and Sewer Commission meetings are normally held at the Bobby Gish Administrative Building located at 111 Fifth Street on the third Monday of each month at 4:30 p.m. local time.  Please call 270-826-2421 if you have any questions concerning the meetings.

Henderson is a “Combined Sewer System” community.  In the older parts of the city, we have combined sewers that channel both sanitary and stormwater to the wastewater treatment plant when it rains.  In newer parts of the city, we have a separate storm sewer system.
