Most of Munford's sewer system customers are connected using a "Gravity" Sewer System connection.   But about 350 residences in Munford use the alternative STEP Sewer System which includes a holding tank for sewage, a screen chamber, and a small pressure pump within the tank.  The liquid waste is pumped through a small pressure line into the city-wide sewer lines leading to Munford's wastewater treatment plant.

Extending Sewer Mains

The Munford Municipal Code states that persons desiring water, sewer or gas main extensions must pay all the cost of making such extensions.   The Code also allows the board of mayor and alderman to waive the previous provision when it's their opinion that it is in the best interest of the City of Munford and its inhabitants to construct a water, sewer or gas main extension without requiring strict compliance with the preceding section and  such extension may be constructed upon such terms and conditions as shall be approved by the board of mayor and aldermen.
