The More You Know...
When customers flush items not meant for the wastewater collection system, it creates blockages which require expensive equipment and staff time to address. Blockages in the wastewater system can also contribute to Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSO) which result in fines from regulatory agencies. Please do your part to keep our system blockage-free and do not treat your toilet like a trash can.
