March 20: Refrain from flusing any wipes

MARCH 20, 2020

Refrain from flusing any wipes

The Department of Community Services is seeing an increase in clogs in Summit’s sanitary sewer system and asks that people refrain from flushing wipes down the toilet. Wipes are a significant problem for Summit’s 100 year-old sewer system. These products go down the drain and cause backups, blocked or minimized sewer lines, unpleasant odors, and increased maintenance costs. Please dispose of wipes with regular household garbage.
