Sewer Department:  PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH ANYTHING OTHER THAN TOILET PAPER. Other material (wipes, paper towels, etc.) cause clogging of sewer pumps.  We cannot afford to lose a pump because of foreign debris entering the pump station; which would most likely result in multiple homes backing up with sewage.
