ResponsibilitiesButler County manages and operates seven rural sewer districts serving several rural communities throughout the county.
These sewer districts are statutorily created benefit districts governed by the Board of County Commissioners that provide public sewer systems for the collection and treatment of residential and light commercial wastewater.
The cost for the construction of these systems as well as the annual operating expenses is paid for by the property owners within the sewer district boundaries receiving benefit of the system.
