Community Care and Awareness: Public Service Insights from the Texas Association of Water Board Directors (AWBD)

Protect the Pipes, Don’t Flush the Wipes!” Despite being marketed as flushable these wipes cannot be processed through sewerage treatment plants and wreak havoc on them, driving up operating costs and in turn your bills. They can also clog pipes and cause sewage backups, leading to public health hazards and expensive repairs.

Stormwater Drains Aren’t Trash Dumpsters.” They should not be used for disposal of any materials or liquids other than water as they are direct channels to our rivers and oceans. Be a pollution preventer not a pollution participant.
