LOUDOUN WATER - Reminder: "Flushable" Wipes are Not Flushable!
Reminder that even if a product is labeled "flushable" that does not mean that they will break apart after being flushed. The only product that should be flushed is 2-ply toilet paper.
The following items belong in a trash can: "flushable wipes," baby wipes, sanitizing wipes, personal care wipes, paper towels, cleaning wipes or make-up remover wipes.
These items can accumulate and build up in sewer pipes, which can hinder flow and even cause backups that are harmful to the environment and costly to homeowners and utilities. Help keep your drains and our sewers clear of this debris.
