City Offers Sewer Advice

Flushable Wipes Image_2017

Due to a growing percentage of sewer backups throughout the City of McPherson, the McPherson Wastewater Department is launching an educational campaign. The “Keep the Wipes Out of the Pipes!” campaign focuses on eliminating sewer blockage by properly discarding disposable wipes. Campaign literature being distributed throughout local neighborhoods suggests disposable wipes, even those labeled “flushable,” should be disposed of in the trash instead of being flushed down the toilet. Most wipes including bathroom wipes, baby wipes, disinfecting wipes and towelettes do not degrade, which can clog pipes and cause sewer backups. For more information, contact the Wastewater Department at 620.245.2540.
