Please Do NOT Flush Wipes in the Pipes!

The District has experienced a number of service calls related to so-called "Flushable Wipes".
These products can and will plug pipes, grinder pumps, and sewer lines. Regardless of marketing claims, sewer systems nationwide are fighting the effects of these wipes and the repair costs associated with them. 
 
Please DO NOT flush these products, cloth rags, or diapers. They will plug the grinder pump that your service empties into, and repairs will be required. If a service call and repairs are performed due to fibrous products being flushed from a residence, the homeowner may be liable for the costs of repairs; these costs may be several thousand dollars.
