One of our current challenges is dealing with what we call ‘rags’. This includes baby wipes, cleaning products claimed to be ‘flushable’, or almost anything else except toilet paper. These products do not break down in the sanitary collection system or the wastewater treatment process. They clog pumps in the collection system and at the waste water treatment plant. A rag removal system does not exist at the wastewater plant resulting in rags plugging the grit (course heavier materials) removal air lift and process mixing equipment. Please do not flush these products down the toilet.
