The City of Fishers has separate sanitary and storm water collection and conveyance systems. Residential and commercial wastewater leaves houses and building via the building connections to the 8-inch diameter mainline sewers running under the streets or backyards. Wastewater is conveyed through increasingly larger diameter pipes to neighborhood lift stations. From there the wastewater is conveyed to larger regional lift stations, then to the Cheeney Creek Wastewater Treatment Facility.

The wastewater treatment facilities feature preliminary treatment, primary sedimentation, activated sludge, nitrification, secondary clarification, disinfection and effluent re-aeration. Biosolids stabilization is via the N-Viro Soil process.
