Utility Update - Things to Keep Out of Your Drains

The Chapin Utilities Department reminds you that not everything that goes down your drains or toilets is good for the sewer system. Fats, oil and grease pose problems that include clogged drains and layers of thick scum in pumping stations.  The result? Sewage overflows that can cause health hazards, damage homes and threaten the environment.

Another problem area is "flushable" wipes. These don't break down like toilet paper and can clog pipes and cause problems at pump stations, adding to the expense of maintaining the sanitary sewer system. Wipes can get tangled in the gears of the pumps or block filter equipment, creating even more problems. We have uploaded some helpful videos and a fact sheet on the website for your reference.
