Keep Wipes Out of Pipes

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option

Communities across the globe are challenged to keep sanitary sewer lines clear and unclogged since "flushable" wipes have become more widely used.

Despite what the packaging may say, these wipes claiming to be “safe for sewers and septic” are not dissolving in City pipes.

When plunged into our sewer system, these wipes and other non-dissolvable products can cause costly, time-consuming basement backups and damage to pump station equipment. Worse yet, the expense for repairs can fall on homeowners as well as the City.

Together we can protect our pipes by trashing the wipes.  Questions? Call the Westerville Public Service Department at (614) 901-6740.
