Doing Your Part

The District is committed in doing our part in safeguarding the water care cycle. Keeping harmful pollutants out of the sewer system such as Fats Oils, Grease and Grit (FOGG), pharmaceuticals and non-flushable items saves time and money in the wastewater treatment process.  FOGG are harmful to your household pipes, sewer system and the environment. You can do your part by making sure that FOGG and other harmful items stay out of wastewater.

The only things you should flush down the Toilet are the three P's: Pee, Poo and Toilet Paper! While that may make you giggle, sewer overflows in your home are no laughing matter. Certain items can harm your pipes and the wastewater collection system and damage expensive equipment, causing backups and overflows. Some items can’t be removed from the wastewater and return to our drinking water source. 

If you have any question about whether or not something can be putdown the drain or toilet, please call us at  (702)668-8065 or email us at publicinfo@cleanwaterteam.com.
