Community Notice: Wipes Clog Pipes

contribute's picture

Dear Resident,

We continue to have a major issue with the amount of clogs at our sewer pump stations. The
predominate cause has been the increase of wipes and rags that should not be disposed of in the
sewer system. Those items need to be disposed of properly in the trash. Please note there is no such
thing as a “flushable wipes”. They do not breakdown and bind together to clog the pipes and
pumps. We need your IMMEDIATE assistance and ask that you please refrain from flushing any
foreign items. Not only does this cause costly repairs, but it could lead to back up of sewerage into
your home. We thank you for your cooperation in this very important matter!

Water and Sewer Manager
