THINK BEFORE YOU FLUSH! The increased use of cleaning wipes during the COVID-19 outbreak is good on the disease mitigation front but could cause some problems for our sanitary sewer system. Please DO NOT flush cleaning wipes, baby wipes, or paper towels down the toilet. Throw them in the trash. Wipes and paper towels do not dissolve like toilet paper and can clog your pipes and your neighborhood’s pipes and even jam up Babbitt’s sanitary sewer lift stations. In these uncertain times, the last thing you or your neighbors need is a sewage backup in your home. Please help us spread the message!
