Flushable wipes — used for changing diapers, personal hygiene, house cleaning, and more — cause major problems when flushed down toilets. Because they don’t break down the way toilet paper does, these wipes clog homeowner and community sewer pipes, place stress on our community wastewater collection and treatment equipment, and cause communities like ours to spend thousands on premature equipment repair and replacement. Wipes snag on any imperfection in sewer pipes, catch passing debris and grease, and create a “ball” that will grow to plug the pipe. They also get drawn into sewer-line and wastewater treatment plant pumps and clog and damage them. Our operations staff must manually clear out pumps or remove clogs. We are also having problems with grease build up in our system. Please put your grease where it belongs. Thank you for your cooperation.
