Do you have adequate water pressure at your residence or property? A common cause of low water pressure is debris in faucet aerators. If you experience low water pressure, you can easily diagnose the problem by opening an outside spigot on your property. If there is good pressure and flow, the problem likely is occurring somewhere within your plumbing. Water pressure is measured in pounds per square inch (PSI), and you can measure your water pressure by using a pressure gauge, which is available at most home improvement retailers; or, you can have a licensed plumber measure it for you, or install a pressure reducing valve as needed. For more information on issues of water pressure, contact us at 478-464-5600, or check out the link below to the FAQ’s on water pressure on this website. Learn More »

While some wet wipes are marketed and sold to consumers as “flushable” items, don’t believe it! Wipes actually are NOT flushable, because they do not “break up” like traditional toilet paper. They may flush, but they do not disintegrate. In fact, according to tests conducted by Consumer Reports, “flushable” wet wipes were still intact after 10 minutes following a simulated flushing. The test then placed those same wet wipes in a mixer for another 10 minutes. Still no disintegration. As a result, Consumer Reports confirms what MWA wastewater plant operators and line crews have known for a long time – wet wipes are NOT flushable! For a demonstration of how "flushable" wet wipes do not break apart, check out the "Learn More" link to the Consumer Reports video below. Learn More »
