Residents are reminded “what not to flush”
The public response to the Coronavirus outbreak has created a temporary shortage of toilet paper. If shortages continue, people might consider using alternative products. Residents are reminded that our sewer system is designed to ONLY handle water, human waste and toilet paper. Other items can potentially clog sewer lines and lead to sewer backups for homes and businesses. To help keep the sewer system flowing smoothly, residents should not dispose of most everyday items into the sanitary sewer system.
Do NOT flush any of the following:
– Baby or “flushable” or disinfecting wipes (Even wipes labeled “flushable” do not breakdown in the sewer system and can cause blockages in pipes and our treatment center.)
– Paper towels, napkins, or Kleenex
– Cotton balls or swabs
– Feminine hygiene products or other personal care items
If you use any of the above listed items, please dispose of them in a wastebasket and NOT in the toilet.
