Notice Regarding Disposable Shop Towels

The city has been having to clean out sewers which have been clogged by disposable shop towels.  These are heavy duty paper towels, such as Scott Multi-Purpose Shop Towels or Scott Rags in a Box All Purpose Towels.  Please do not flush these, or any other type of paper towels down a toilet.  It creates unnecessary problems and expense for the City and its residents.

Thank You!

Larrie Ordus, Water & Sewer Department and DPW Director
