Flushable Wipes Request From the Public Works Dept.

07/25/13 | Source: facebook.com

The City of Montrose is asking its residents to not flush disposable wipes into the sanitary sewer system. Many of the wipes state on the package that they are flushable, which they are, but they do not break down, like toilet paper, in the sanitary sewer system. The use of disposable wipes have caused a dramatic increase in slugged pumps at the City’s lift stations, and also blockages in both City and private sewer lines. When the Public Works Department receives an alarm or phone call notifying them of a problem they respond 24 hours a day, which increases the maintenance costs and ultimately the sewer rates being charged. The Public Works Department recommends that anyone interested in learning more about flushable wipes and the effects they have on the sanitary sewer system view this short presentation at
