WELCOME!

The CSO! Program is a major water quality improvement program being led by the City of Omaha Public Works Department. It will improve water quality in our local rivers and streams by capturing or treating 85% of the average annual combined sewage volume through a series of projects. Before beginning implementation of the CSO! Program, about 3.7 billion gallons of raw sewage mixed with stormwater overflowed into the Missouri River and the Papillion Creek in an average year. Through the CSO! Program, the City will dramatically reduce the volume of overflows and meet regulatory requirements. It is funded by all ratepayers who use the City's regional wastewater collection and treatment system.
