The Public Works Department has created this section to keep you informed of seasonal and everyday rules and regulations.  Some will be new and some will be friendly reminders.

Sewer : "Flushable Wipes" Wreak Havoc on City Pipes

A modern convenience that is increasingly popping up in bathrooms across America is causing big problems for wastewater utilities.  So-called "flushable wipes" are moist towelettes that are primarily marketed to adults. Unfortunately, since they're designed to be strong, the wipes do not break down as easily as toilet paper.

Sewer : Septic Systems

Those properties not on sewer lines utilize private on-site septic systems.  Learn more about permit requirements and financial assistance programs for non-compliant systems.
