Defend your Drains - the 3 P's

With residents possibly rationing or running out of toilet paper, our Public Works Department would like to remind City residents to be mindful on what you can and can not flush down your toilet.

Do flush the "Three P's"

  • Pee
  • Poo
  • (Toilet) Paper

3 ps

Do not flush:

  • Feminine products
  • Paper towels
  • Baby wipes or "flushable" wipes
  • Disinfecting wipes 
  • Kleenex or tissues
  • Rags

These items can create system wide blockages and may result in sewage overflowing into streets or backing up into homes.

We ask all City residents to continue to be mindful during the COVID-19, and ongoing. Flushing the unflushables will create unnecessary and highly costly infrastructure damage. Together, we can make a difference and ensure long-term infrastructure success.
