During this time of wiping things down and disinfecting surfaces, we wanted to remind everyone NOT to flush anything that is not designed to go into your toilet. The wipes that are marketed as “flushable” are not! They should be disposed of in your garbage, not the toilet.
Be best rule of thumb is to only flush the “Three P’s – Pee, Poo and Paper!”
Other products do not break down in the sewage system and will plug the lift station pumps. This causes the pumps to shut down and the sewage to back up and divert, untreated, into the St. John River.
Thank you for your cooperation.
