Sewer Clogs

"WIPE" OUT SEWER CLOGS: The toilet is not a trash!

DO NOT FLUSH ANYTHING EXCEPT TOILET PAPER
The City of Mechanicville has installed a new sewage pump station behind City Hall in May 2013. Even though sewage pumps were installed, the new pumps have been clogging with wipes and other products that have been flushed down the toilet.

This is a national issue that is impacting us in Mechanicville. It costs communities tens of thousands of dollars. Help save yours and the City's money, time and infrastructure.

Back up and clogs in the City's sewers and pumps must be manually cleaned by City employees. Clogs which occur in a home sewer will require costly plumbing repairs. Avoid the costly repairs, do not flush anything other than toilet paper down the toilet. Place all other products in the trash.
