Many Bath Charter Township residents are connected to municipal sanitary sewer services. Sanitary sewage generated in the Township is treated at the Clean Water Plant, which is operated by the Southern Clinton County Municipal Utilities Authority (SCCMUA). SCCMUA was formed in the mid-1970s by the City of DeWitt and Bath Charter Township, DeWitt and Watertown Charter Townships to address the need for a regional wastewater treatment plant. SCCMUA is also responsible for contractually operating and maintaining the sanitary sewer systems in these four communities.

Construction of the Clean Water Plan started in September 1978 with the plant going into operation in October 1980. The Clean Water Plant cost approximately $11,000,000 to construct and is capable of treating up to 5,000,000 gallons of sanitary sewage a day.

SCCMUA discharges into the Looking Glass River in Clinton County and maintains a current National Pollutant Discharge Eliminating System permit. The operation of SCCMUA is governed by a ten member Board of Commissioners comprised of individuals representing the four constituent municipalities.

Residents are billed quarterly for sanitary sewer services based on an adopted Residential Equivalent Unit (REU) schedule. More on Sanitary Sewer Billing & Payments
