What is the city's greatest improvement need?
Many disposable wipes claim to be flushable but actually they do not break down as they travel through pipes and into the sewer collection system. These wipes can create clogs in both household plumbing and the city’s sewer system and result in costly sewer backups. Other products that cause problems and should be flushed are: disposable diapers, rages and towels, feminine care products, paper towels, cotton balls/swabs, facial tissue and kitchen grease. PLEASE do your part and place these materials where they belong: in the trash. Putting the wrong things down the drain can damage the public sewer system and cause sewer backups in your home. THE ONLY THING YOU SHOULD EVER FLUSH DOWN A TOILET IS HUMAN WASTE AND TOILET PAPER.
