General Services is responsible for the operation and maintenance of approximately 57 miles of sewer mains and nine lift stations that have a total of 18 pumps. The lift stations run in an on-call, automated program 24 hours per day, 365 days a year, moving a half-billion gallons of sewage to treatment plants operated by L.A. City and L.A. County.
We take great pride in making sure that the sewer system is maintained and operating in a safe, efficient and effective manner. To report a problem with the system, such as an odor or blockage, please report it here.
General Services is responsible for the operation and maintenance of approximately 18 miles of storm drains, nearly 400 catch basins, several detention basins, and three lift stations. We ensure the system is safely conveying stormwater runoff to protect life and property at all times, and we work with the Engineering Division to comply with all Federal and State regulations in an environmentally-conscious manner.
See pollution in the street or entering the storm drain curb openings (catch basins), or want to report an issue? Report it here.
The General Services Division maintains the City's motorized and portable equipment for all the departments including Police and Fire. We ready, evaluate, acquire, replace and dispose of equipment and vehicles to help keep essential services running smoothly and response-ready.
It's our pleasure to serve our internal customers, so they can provide best-in-class service to the residents, businesses and visitors of El Segundo.
