No Wipes in the Pipes!

With many residents turning to paper towels, napkins, and flushable wipes as alternatives to toilet paper it is important to remember to not flush these items down the toilet!

These materials can cause serious issues for your own pipes and also for the City’s Wastewater System. Disposable disinfectant wipes, baby wipes, and even so‑called “flushable” wipes do not break down easily (or at all) once they are flushed. Paper products other than toilet paper do not break down once in the sewer line. No matter what the label says, don’t flush them, trash them instead.

When these wipes and other materials interact with fats, oils, grease or invasive rootsin the sewer, they bind together, causing blockages and creating the potential for overflows. Sewer backups can be both messy and costly to clean up. When these items are flushed, our sewer pipes and pump stations require increased monitoring, maintenance, and repair. This increases operational costs, which are paid for by your sewer rates. If wipes and other materials can clog our large sewer pipes, they can definitely clog your home’s much smaller pipes too, requiring you to hire and pay a plumber to clear that blockage.

Please help spread the word! Tell yourfamily members to only flush toilet paper and nothing else.At work, you can help by posting notices in bathrooms and other places where paper towels, wipes, or rags might be used or disposed of. With your help we can prevent any issues from occurring during this already difficult time.

Remember…“Trash ‘em, don’t flush ‘em!”
