Clean Water Tip

WASTE WATER

Toilets are only meant for one activity, and you know what we’re talking about! When the wrong thing is flushed, results can include costly backups on your own property or problems at our wastewater treatment plant.

What you can do

Take Action

All of those bathroom wipes that are advertised as “flushable” aren’t so flushable after all! When these wipes are flushed, clogs and backups can occur in the sanitary sewer system. This leads to costly repairs! Remember — No Wipes in the Pipes!

Ponder This

Words of Wisdom

The ultimate test of man’s conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard.
