[ARCHIVED] Please Help! Only flush toilet paper and human waste into the sewer system!

Please help! We are all in this together and feeling the ripple effects of COVID-19. The City has already had an increase in issues and clogging of lift stations due to utility users flushing wet wipes, rags, and other "flushable" fabric materials into the sewer.

This is a PSA - please only flush toilet paper and human waste! Our sewer systems and treatment plants were not designed to handle wipes. They gum up the system, clog pipes and pumps, and cost taxpayers and residents lots of money in additional maintenance costs. If you must use wipes, put them in the trash, not the toilet.

Many homeowners have experienced plumbing problems because of wipes, so you may have expensive maintenance issues at home if you flush them. Thank you for your cooperation.
