Residents are reminded that certain solid waste items do not belong in the sewer system. Many materials, flushed or poured down the drain can become stuck in sewer lift stations, potentially causing sewer back-ups in homes. Disposable does not mean Flushable. Items claiming to be biodegradable do not necessarily break down well enough to be put into the sewer system.
Cloth-like materials such as shop towels, kitchen and bathroom wipes can plug up the sewer system. Product packaging clearly indicates disposal into a trashcan. If it doesn't dissolve immediately in a bowl, it should not be placed into the sewer. The exception, of course, is toilet paper.
Grease is also a major problem for the sewer system. It will coat the walls of the sewer pipe and eventually cause a clog and possible sewer back-up. Instead, place grease in a container, let it solidify, and throw it into the trash.
Common items that should not be flushed into the sewer system:
As part of the state mandated water conservation plan, and to assure adequate water supply, the city council passed an ordinance (Chapter 26; Section 26 to 30) restricting water usage, effective annually from May 1 to September 30. During that time, all non-essential water usage, such as lawn and garden sprinkling, irrigation and car washing is based on an odd/even watering cycle and time of day watering restriction which prohibits irrigation between 10 am to 5 pm daily.
Compliance with this ordinance is mandatory. Failure to comply may result in a fine. Special permit consideration will be given for those property owners with new seed or sod.
