Sewer System

Sanitary Sewer System

The Borough of Denver maintains a sewer collection system that flows wastewater from the Borough to the IMG interceptor. The majority of the Borough’s collection system is a gravity feed system. The Borough does have two (2) pressure systems in the Denver Heights Development and on South 4th Street that pumps sewage into the Borough’s gravity system.

This sewage then flows through the interceptor to the Sewer Treatment Plant #2 located at 43 Springhouse Road, Ephrata, PA, where the sewage is treated. Treatment Plant #2 is operated by Ephrata Borough and treats sewage flows from Denver Borough, East Cocalico Township, and Ephrata Township.
