Residents flushing items such as “flush-able” wipes, rags, disinfectant wipes, moist wipes and paper towels amid the Corona virus pandemic is leading to disruptions at the sanitary sewer plant.
These items do not breakdown and are already causing issues in our sanitary sewers, which could then create backups into homes.
The Mississippi River is on the rise and the sewer plant will be pushed to keep up with the rising water. Not flushing the above items will help relieve unnecessary stress on the plant. Thank you in advance for your help in resolving this issue!
