flushing disposal wipes, diapers feminine products and paper towels plug sewer lines. Cleaning wipes, sanitary wipes, paper towels, feminine products are designed to function when wet. These products normally do not break down in sewers and consequently
plug sewer lines and mains. Avoid sewer backups by throwing these items in the trash. DO NOT throw them in the toilet.
Twice a year, during the Spring and Fall, the Utility Department flushes all of the hydrants throughout town. During and following flushing of the hydrants, residents may experience a temporary interruption of their service and/or discoloring of their water. Residents should simply run the faucet for approximately 30 seconds until the discoloration is gone. Residents will be notified prior to the flushing of the hydrants
