Sewer plugging up! What not to flush!

3/25/2020

COVID19 has lead to hoarding caused shortages of many products, not the least of which is toilet paper. Please do NOT flush paper towels or wipes- not even the falsely labeled "flushable" wipes -which really are not flushable. These have been plugging up critical parts of our sewer system, which leads to backups. These can get ugly for the public, and are always ugly and a safety hazard for city workers. Use toilet paper only, or "kleenex" facial tissue if you absolutely must. Get creative, trade with neighbors who have plenty if you cannot find any. Your cooperation will help save taxpayer & ratepayer dollars and keep our essential services operating.

THANK YOU!
