Protect Your Sewer System
Flushing anything other than human waste and toilet paper down the toilet can cause serious damage to the sewer system. "Flushable" wipes should NEVER be flushed down the toilet because they do not break down. Please discard them in the trash, not the toilet. California sewer agencies have reported significant sewage backups due to the improper disposal of wipes and cleaning supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please do your part to prevent sewer spills and protect Lake Tahoe and our environment.
