What Not to Flush - Wipes

The Town of Rocky Mountain House has had an increase in sewer back-ups on service lines and main lines in various areas of Town in the past 6 months.

The most common problem found has been the increase in the many different types of wipes being used. These items should not be flushed. This includes disinfecting, baby, facial and even "flushable" wipes. These items cause sewer and pump blockages resulting in backups that can be expensive for homeowners and the Town.

Items like rags, wipes and feminine hygiene products should be placed in the household garbage.

This has become a very costly North American problem. Please be aware and think before you flush.
