No wipes in the pipes! It’s important to keep our Clean Water Plant running smoothly by only flushing toilet paper. Please do not flush wipes of any kind, paper towel, napkins, tissue, feminine hygiene products, or other non-toilet paper items, as they can cause plugs in sewer pipes and create sewage backups.
