A “Did you know?” moment brought to you by the City of Dallas
Flushable does not always mean flushable?
The generic term “wet wipes” includes pre-moistened wipes used in lieu of toilet paper, baby wipes, premoistened towelettes, and disinfectant wipes. These items have become very popular over the last several years and many brands claim to be flushable even though they do not break down like regular toilet paper in the sewer system. They tend to catch and snag in the pipes, forming blockages and back-ups, clogging pumps, and leading to all sorts of unpleasant and expensive problems. Ideally, the only thing that should be flushed other than human waste is toilet paper.
This cold and flu season remember:
“Wet wipes” may feel soft on skin, but they are hard on infrastructure. Thank you for your assistance keeping our systems working for everyone!
