DISINFECTING WIPES ARE NOT FLUSHABLE

With the increased use of disinfecting wipes with the Corona virus pandemic, please remember these wipes are NOT flushable, even though they are marketed as “flushable.”  DO NOT FLUSH paper towels, Kleenex, wipes, or rags down the toilet.  Residents should know that these wipes will plug the lift pumps and fill the lagoons even faster with sludge, costing money to remove and reducing the lagoon’s treatment capacity, which will cause your sewer bill to go up faster than it would need to.  Thank you for your cooperation!
