Our mission is to provide wastewater collection and treatment services to the City of Warwick in a cost effective and environmentally sound manner.
The Warwick Sewer Authority was created in 1962 by Rhode Island Public Law 1962, Chapter 254, Section 2 as an enterprise fund. There are approximately 250 miles of sanitary sewer lines and 45 sewage pump stations within the City used to convey wastewater. Warwick’s Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility uses modern processes and equipment to treat wastewater and remove most of the pollutants before discharging into the Pawtuxet River. Ongoing sewer construction projects continue to expand the WSA sewer system in order to provide services to eliminate or minimize environmental, safety and public health problems.
With thirty-nine miles of coastline, beautiful beaches and coves in the City of Warwick, the Warwick Sewer Authority is committed to sustaining our natural resources. In conjunction with Save the Bay, Coastal Resources Management Council and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Protection, the WSA has implemented a Mandatory Sewer Connection Program, mandating connection to available sewers throughout the City. Increased participation in our sewer system will significantly improve water quality within the Narragansett and Greenwich Bay watershed areas.
