[ARCHIVED] No WIPES Should be Flushed!

Sewer Line Maintenance

We all need to do our part to keep our sewer system from backing up, clogging, and causing damage.  The Water Reclamation Department follows a 3 year cycle for cleaning our sewer lines.  

 Ways to keep the system from clogging are:

  • Do Not pour Fat's, Oil's or Greases (FOG's) down the kitchen drain. See City Ordinance Sec 48/Div 2. FOG's 
  • Do Not flush paper products that do no disintegrate easily. Be wary if the packaging says safe for septic systems. Read how Flushable wipes (PDF) are causing problems within our city and state sewer mains. 
  • Do Not connect anything to the sewer lines that is illegal including sump pumps, french drains, or roof gutter drains.  See City Ordinance Sec 48-109/110.
