Reminder from the Chadds Ford Sewer Authority

In order to avoid sewer backups and overflows, please read the following reminder from the Chadds Ford Sewer Authority about what NOT to flush.

 Just because something CAN be flushed, doesn’t mean it SHOULD be flushed. Flushing any kind of wipes – even those labeled as “flushable” – or other paper products like paper towels, paper napkins or even tissues can clog pipes and lead to internal and external pipe blockages and sewer emergencies.

So please remember, whether you’re on public sewer or a private septic system, please don’t flush anything other than toilet paper to avoid unnecessary sewer and plumbing emergencies.

Thank you and stay safe!
