A reminder to residents, wipes and other “flushables” should not be flushed. They do not degrade in the system and cause plugs in the Sewer System, as well as causing problems in the Treatment Plant. These items should be disposed of in the trash. (Most of these “flushable” items have disposal instructions in small print).
With the recent virus incident the increase in folks flushing these items will cause many problems and will ultimately increase costs and lead to sharp rate increases in the future.
