The Pike's Bay Sanitary District (PBSD) represents about 20% of the land area of Bayfield Township. The PBSD is governed by three Commissioners who are popularly elected and are charged with governing on behalf of the Town residents included in the PBSD area (see map). The PBSD provides facilities for the collection of sewerage for a part of the district by providing collection piping, manholes, and lift stations in the District. The waste generated in the PBSD, and from the City of Bayfield, is piped to a state-of-the-art treatment facility (the Greater Bayfield Waste Water Treatment Plant or GBWWTP) located in the Township. The GBWWTP facility is owned and operated by the Greater Bayfield Waste Water Treatment Plant Commission whose Board is comprised of three representatives from the PBSD (the PBSD Commissioners) and tree representatives from the City of Bayfield.
