Safer at Home Begins

While you were away...
Flush Stagnant Lines for Consumption
If your home or facility has been vacant for a significant length of time, we recommend flushing your water lines before you use the water for consumption. Turning on your faucets for several minutes removes the older stagnant water from your lines and brings in fresh water. Run the water until you feel a significant drop in temperature to ensure you are getting fresh water from our distribution system.

DO NOT FLUSH!

Here are a few recommendations to consider regarding the wastewater treatment plant:

Please note: Some wipes are labeled “flushable” but should not be flushed down your toilet. These can
cause blockages in your sewer pipes and cause wastewater to back up into your house causing additional
hygiene issues and potentially structural water damage.

COVER YOUR FLUSH!
Always avoid putting these items down a drain...
