Sanitary Board

The City of Weirton Sanitary Board is responsible for managing and operating the sewage system of the greater Weirton, West Virginia area. The Weirton sewer system consists of various underground pipes and pumps which remove sewage from local homes, businesses, and industries of the Weirton area. The sewage is collected at the wastewater plant for treatment and disposal into the Ohio River.

The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 5000 Freedom Way near the old Fort Steuben Bridge. The treatment plant is designed to treat 4.0 million gallons of wastewater per day.

Notice to the City of Weirton Sewer Customers

If you have sewage back up in your home, basement or business, call the Sanitary Board before you call a plumber. It could be a main line blockage that is causing the back up and there is no charge for one of our employees to check the lines and if there is a problem we will correct it.

We are staffed 24 hours a day 365 days a year and we can have someone respond within 30 minutes.

If you experience sewage back up call 304-797-8550 and press 1 for a "sewer emergency".  If no one answers the phone, leave a message with the nature of the problem, your name, address and a phone number and we will call you back.

Your cooperation will help to keep costs down which will help to keep your sewer rates low.
