In 2004 the City began a program to expand sewer availability to all residences within its sewer district. The project was broken into three phases and was completed in 2008 with a total cost of $5.48 million. To accommodate flat areas or uphill sloped areas the City utilized a pressure type system as an alternative to the gravity system. As a result, there are two types of sewer connections in the City; pressure and gravity. If a residence is on the pressure connection list then it is will require a pressure connection, otherwise the residence is a gravity connection.

There are approximately 200 homes in Lake Forest Park that operate an on-site wastewater system and are not connected to the sewer utility. Properties that operate an on-site wastewater system are required to obtain a license through the City to ensure the system is operating properly. Once an existing on-site wastewater system fails the residence must be connected to the sanitary sewer system.
