The Sewer Department provides the City with a safe and efficient means of transporting the City's wastewater to the wastewater treatment plant, the Lake Ozark/Osage Beach Joint Sewer Treatment Plant.   The treatment plant is a state of the art treatment facility shared by the Cities of Lake Ozark and Osage Beach and is located adjacent to the Osage River.   The plant collects, treats, and disposes an average of nearly 2 million gallons of sewage daily from both Cities.

The City of Osage Beach began sewer infrastructure and operations in the mid-1980s.   Today the City's sewer service area encompasses approximately 97% of the area within the City limits, and some users outside the City limits, serving over 6,300 equivalent users.    Infrastructure includes over 143 miles of pressured sewer lines and over 9 miles of gravity sewer lines, 57 major lift stations, 1,115 grinder (minor) lift stations, 7 odor control facilities, and 2 EQ basins.

The Sewer Department recognizes the importance of responsible and safe wastewater transportation and treatment to the public health and safety and the importance of fiscal responsibility.    The City's sewer system is complex and very unique given the Lake's topography, and the department continues to look for ways to reduce costs and improve efficiency, including streamlining services and consistently reviewing processes and policies to ensure the best job is done.

Sewer Department Funding
The City's entire sewer system, including maintenance, repair, line extensions, sewer treatment, personnel, and equipment is operated with funds collected solely from service charges, user rates, impact fees, and a portion of the City's CIT (Capital Improvement Tax).  

A portion of the CIT funds are approved for sewer funding by the Board of Aldermen, as needed, each year as a subsidy to the IN-City users of the system.   The subsidy helps maintains lower IN-City user rates and Out-of-City users do NOT benefit from the CIT, or any taxes, collected within the City limits of Osage Beach.   All funds for the sewer system are administered in an enterprise account held separately from the City's general fund, per the City's Municipal Code.

The City's Utility billing, for both Sewer and Water users, are managed and administered in the Office of the City Treasurer, by the Utility Billing Clerk.   All questions or concerns regarding billing of the City's utilities may be made via email or in person through the Office of the City Treasurer located at City Hall.
