Don’t Flush That!

Don’t Flush That

When you use your toilet, shower, washing machine or dishwasher, sink,  wastewater leaves your home through pipes that connect to the city sewer system.

Many materials frequently flushed or poured down the drain can harm the pipes that connect to city sewers as well as the city sewer system. Every property owner connected to the city sewer system can be a potential contributor to sewer problems, and a potential victim of those problems. Everyday we get used to pouring down all sorts of items down the drains, and don’t think twice about it.

Putting the wrong things down the drain can damage the sewer or septic system, cause sewer backups in your home, and sewer releases to the environment.
