The City of Cologne’s Public Works Department  is responsible for the planning, operation and maintenance of the sanitary sewer system and the storm drainage system. Water services within the City are municipally-owned and independently operated by Cologne Public Utilities. The City of Cologne hires its own employees, sets its own budget, adopts rules and regulations and fixes rates for water  services. Sewer, water and storm drainage services are all billed to City residents by the City of Cologne on a monthly basis.
