Flushing wipes, paper towels and similar products down toilets will clog sewers, cause backups and overflows with internal plumbing and within the Town system. Even wipes labeled as "flushable" will clog pipes and interfere with the sewer collection system and pumps. Please dispose of these items in the trash.
Please NEVER Flush:
Paper towels, disposable wipes, washcloths and rags
Any synthetic materials such as plastic, which do not decompose or dissolve
Cotton balls or cotton swabs
Unused medication or syringes
Fats, oils and grease
The Water and Sewer Division is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Town's water and sanitary sewer systems, thereby providing for the health and well-being of the public. It is organized into two programs, which are funded entirely by the water and sewer rate payers.
