A Message From Your Sewer Department

With this pandemic of the coronavirus, the use of disinfecting wipes, baby wipes, and other wipes have increased. Even though the manufacturer states they are flushable, the wipes do not break down in the sewer. Wipes have caused many problems throughout the wastewater field, such as sewer pipes clogging, pumps jamming causing more of a maintenance problem, and sewer backups. In this crisis, the one thing you do not need is to have your sewage backing up in your home.

We at Shorewood Forest Utilities are asking that you dispose of your wipes in the proper place. They belong in the garbage, not the sewer.

Please help us help you. Your sewer utility is open, and we are here to help any way we can.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
