Don’t Flush Wipes

By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– Victor Valley Waste Water Reclamation Authority officials are seeing an increase in the number of wipes and rags in the sewer system.

Wipes are among the leading causes of sewer system backups. This is a good time to re-emphasize that there is no such thing as “flushable” wipes. “Flushable” or disinfecting wipes do not break down like toilet paper and they will clog our interceptors, pipes and pumps.

If wipes are used, they should be thrown in the trash, not down the toilet.
