In the event of the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more people are flushing items other than toilet paper. Even though some items say that they are biodegradable and able to be flushed, they are not. These items do not fully break down and can cause major problems in the sewer system. Please dispose of these items in your regular garbage.
Items include, but are not limited to:
– wipes (disinfectant, baby and any other type of wipes)
– paper towel
Communities, including Coalhurst, have experienced sewer infrastructure problems including blocked sewer mains and sewer lift station pumps being plugged. This is very problematic and can lead to sewer back-ups to residences.
Please do not flush anything down toilets except for toilet paper.
