NOTICE from CITY OF BURLINGTON
WIPES CLOG SEWER SYSTEM
Please, DO NOT FLUSH WIPES of any type. City of Burlington is experiencing sewer system problems caused by the flushing of various types of wipes.
Although baby wipes, cleansing cloths, and moist wipes and towelettes may be labeled as flushable, most of them do not dissolve when flushed down a toilet. Wipes are getting caught in the sewerlines and are wrapping round sewer pumps.
Wipes are a major cause of sewer blockages and backups; and they are increasing the time and cost to maintain our sewer system.
We need your help to keep our sewer system working efficiently.
DO NOT FLUSH WIPES. THROW THEM IN THE TRASH.
PER STATE REQUIRMENTS, LIEAP PAYMENTS ARE FOR ELECTRIC ONLY.
TO AVOID PENALTIES, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO PAY THE REMAINING BALANCE OF YOUR UTILITY BILL.
