Westerly Waste Water Department:
To all clients:
Flushing wipes, paper towels and similar products down toilets will clog sewers and cause backups and overflows at wastewater treatment facilities, creating an additional public health risk in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic
When a product is labeled ’flushable’ it generally means that it will clear your toilet bowl.
It does not mean it will definitely clear your pipes or break down in the sewer system or at a wastewater treatment plant.
Please see RI DEM Memo regarding this issue
We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in this matter.
