What can I do to protect my pipes and the town's sewer infrastructure?

Even though some products are advertised as flushable on the label, they do cause problems for our wastewater infrastructure. Unfortunately, these wipes rarely, if ever, biodegrade in our sewer system.

Even though some products are advertised as flushable on the label, they do cause problems for our wastewater infrastructure. Unfortunately, these wipes rarely, if ever, biodegrade in our sewer system.  These wipes collect and inevitably cause clogs and equipment failures. When these wipes enter our facility, they are removed and sent to the landfill. During this time, when many folks are home, and some are having trouble finding toilet paper, some are turning to these wipes. 

PLEASE: Flush only natural waste and toilet paper. All other trash, should be disposed of in your trash can.

Sahuarita Water Reclamation Facility asks for your help. PLEASE discard ALL wipes in the trash!  Doing your part will help keep our system flowing properly.
