To Flush or Not To Flush

We would like to remind all of our customers that flushing anything other than toilet paper into the sanitary sewer system could pose problems in the sewer mains, lift stations and the wastewater treatment plant. In addition, individual households and businesses may experience sewer back ups due to blockages cased by flushing inappropriate materials. Materials that not appropriate to flush include but are not limited to: paper towels, napkins, “flushable wipes or towels”, any type of cloth material or feminine hygiene products. These types of materials should be disposed of in the trash not in the toilet.

Please follow these guidelines. Repairs to equipment and clearing of blockages is expensive and time consuming and my pose health issues if a backup of sewage occurs.
