COVID-19 Update - March 20, 2020


Creston BC, March 20, 2020 - Stocks of hand sanitizing liquids or sprays have been depleted in many retail outlets and consumers have opted to purchase ‘flushable’ antiseptic wipes or similar products. Do not flush these items down the toilet. Toilet paper is designed to disintegrate into pulp and move easily through the process of sewage or septic treatment. Flushable wipes and other products are not. These products should be disposed of in your regular curbside garbage.

Residents should always avoid disposing of flushable wipes, paper towels, reinforced paper towels or hygiene related products down the toilet. These products can seriously affect the operations of sewer infrastructure by building up, attracting other solid materials, clogging pipes and treatment plant equipment. Wastewater operators have to engage in the very unpleasant task of finding and extracting these blockages, given the nickname of ‘fatburgs.’

Be conscious of what you are flushing down the toilet and keep the strain on our wastewater system to a minimum. Thank you for your cooperation.
