An effect of more people using wet wipes to "stop the spread" of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 is those wet wipes are ending up in the MWA sewer system. Remember, the toilet is not a trash can! While some wet wipes are marketed as “flushable” items, don’t believe it! Wet wipes actually are NOT flushable, because they do not “break up” like traditional toilet paper. According to a Consumer Reports article on “Think twice about flushing wet wipes,” the bottom line is this: “Treating soiled wet wipes like disposable diapers by tossing them in a lined wastebasket will definitely keep your drain and sewer pipes clear.” For a demonstration on why you should not flush wet wipes, see the "Learn More" link.

One of the effects of people staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic is more grease is showing up in the MWA sewer system. We need your help to protect our sewer lines -- and your home's plumbing -- by keeping them free of fats, oils, and grease (or FOG). Please join us in the fight against FOG! First, wipe plates clean prior to washing in the sink or in the dishwater. Also, let grease cool, and then pour it into a sealed container to throw away. Finally, we have free, reusable grease can covers you can pick up at the drive-thru window at our Second Street Headquarters. For more information on Grease Education, check out the "Learn More" link below. Learn More »
