Always throw wipes away

Friday 3 April Always throw wipes away

Utility Systems is currently experiencing an increase of wipes and other non-flushable items entering the sewer system. We understand that there is a toilet paper shortage at this time, and that our residents must rely on other resources. However, we ask that wipes be thrown away and not flushed. Septic tanks, grinder or STEP systems, and gravity systems are all susceptible to clogs and backups because of wipes. Please help us maintain the integrity of our sewer system and always throw wipes away.
