FRIENDLY REMINDER: DON'T FLUSH WIPES!

Post Date:04/02/2020 6:17 PM

COVID-19 has everyone taking the required precautions of frequently disinfecting/sanitizing all surfaces, which often entails the use of wipes and paper towels. Now is a good time to remind citizens, PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH WIPES OF ANY KIND. They can cause serious harm to the city's sewer system and pumps. The only item that is suited for flushing is toilet paper. Other materials, even those marked flushable, do not dissolve in water and can cause costly sewer backups and increase employees' risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Thank you for your attention to this matter!
