Water Drops sage

Welcome to the City of Bend Wastewater website.

To protect public health and the environment, used water travels through a network of buried pipelines and pumps (the sewer collection system) to the water reclamation facility northeast of Bend. It is cleaned before being returned to the environment. Some water is used for irrigation.

Bend has provided citywide sewer services since 1980.
