Care for your pipes this Drinking Water Week

Care for your pipes this Drinking Water Week

Drinking Water Week continues! Today we are encouraging people to care for their homes' pipes.

Many things can clog a home’s plumbing system, including “flushable” wipes, and fats, oils and grease (FOG). These clog pipes, back up systems and harm the environment when they aren't disposed of properly.

Specific items that don't belong in our toilets or drains, but do belong in the trash, are:
Flushable wipes
Facial tissue
Paper towels
Medications

Learn more at our Caring For Pipes webpage.
