    Please Don't Flush Rags

    May 6, 2020
    When it comes to "rags" and the sewer system, they don't mix! They are small, but mightly and can cause very costly damage to wastewater equipment. The consequences of the damages and repairs will be reflected in your sewer rates. In the wastewater industry the term "rags" is used to describe wipes, towels, shop rags, industrial rags, cleaning wipes, etc.; basically, materials tougher than toilet paper, that are not able to break down in the sewer system. Please make sure you are only using toilet paper when you are flushing!
