Sewer Dept.: PLEASE Don’t Flush Wipes

Posted on April 20, 2020

During the COVID-19 emergency, it has been in the news in many places that sewerage treatment systems are being badly clogged by ‘flushable’ wipes, which actually do not easily degrade.  Montgomery Twp. is no exception. Please remember to go easy (pun intended) on our Sewerage Treatment system here in town and only flush the things you must, including toilet paper.  PLEASE put the rest in the trash, including paper towels and disinfectant wipes. We are fortunate to have a very dedicated DPW Sewer Division staff and they are very busy keeping everything flowing in the right direction.  Equipment can break when avoidable tangles and clogs cause back-ups … and that costs everyone.  Please see below two-page flier to learn more. Thank you for your thoughtful cooperation! Think Before You Flush!
