A Sewer District Issue

Chemung County Sewer Districts Dilemma
Currently the world of waste is battling the wipe. Many utilities are singing the blues on this tune right now. Flushable just isn’t so. They go (barely) through the toilet, only to get clogged in the homeowners lateral, the sewer main, or a pump.
Message: Wipes clog pipes! Toss them into the trash. Wipes will block sewers potentially causing sewer backups in your home or in your neighbor’s home. That could cost you a lot of money for a plumber or make your family sick. Please toss any cleaning wipes into the trash.
Flushing a wipe may end up flushing your money down the drain.
