Don’t believe the label, "flushable wipes" cause backups and are not allowed.Non-woven fabric ”wipes”, or versions thereof, even if labeled as “flushable”, do not biodegrade or breakdown / dissolve. Instead, the material restricts flow and clogs sanitary sewer pipes and pumping mechanisms. Other examples of prohibited material are dental floss, paper towels, plastic items, etc.
It is not permissible to connect Sump Pumps to Sanitary Sewer Systems - this may cause backups. If you suspect that your sump pump may discharge to the sanitary sewer, please contact TRMUA and TRMUA will aid with proper reconfiguration assistance.
