The Sewer Wise Guys

FACILITY
FACTS

Our wastewater treatment facility is designed to handle the three Ps only: Pee, Poop and (toilet) Paper.  Nothing else.

THE TRUTH
ABOUT CLOGS

Flushing down the toilet anything other than the 3Ps – personal wipes, paper towels, cotton swabs, floss, etc. –  causes clogs in our sewer lines.

DO NOT FLUSH “FLUSHABLE” WIPES

Flushed wipes alone result in some $441 million a year in additional operating costs at US wastewater facilities.*
