Trash It. Don't Flush It.
Please help us keep our wastewater system working properly and avoid unnecessary service interruptions.
Dear neighbors, with the recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing a number of changes in our daily lives and it’s becoming more important than ever that we make sound decisions to prevent further issues.
In order to maintain our wastewater system working properly, avoid clogs, equipment damage or process upsets we are reminding everyone of the importance to only flush the appropriate waste down the toilet. As a quick reminder on how to help us protect our system, keep the following in mind:
Flush it: Urine, feces, and toilet paper. These are the ONLY things to flush down the toilet. Toilet paper breaks down in water. Other products do not.
Trash it: Anything else—cotton swabs, baby wipes, wet wipes (even if marked “flushable,”) AND paper towels—must be trashed as domestic waste and NOT flushed down the toilet.
These easy steps will help us keep the system operating properly.
We understand that with a lack of toilet paper supply, other products may be used in our bathrooms and we ask that you make the necessary arrangements to have trash bins in all bathrooms to capture and properly dispose of those and that you ensure everyone in your household understands this. For our businesses, we kindly ask you also take necessary precautions to address this, including temporary posting of signs in your bathrooms.
Please help us spread the word so we can avoid unnecessary issues with our wastewater system, and we can avoid having one more worry to deal with.
