Flushable Wipes

Public Works

On March 20, 2018, one of the City's the sewer lift stations experienced an issue of built up "flushable" wipes; unfortunately this isn't the first occurence.  The City of Mounds View requests that residents DO NOT flush these wipes down their toilets.  These wipes are "flushable" only in the sense that they will go down the toilet; however, they do not break down in water and as a result  snag on roots,  pipe deformations, pumps and motors (lift stations).  These  "flushable" wipes can eventually clog the sewer lines and cause a backup.
