This alert was issued last week but it is still an ongoing issue. The Town of Scituate DPW requests that residents be careful when flushing items down the toilet. Please refrain from flushing wipes even if they say “flushable”. They can block lines and bind up pumps, potentially causing sewer backups into homes. The sewer department has been seeing more and more wipes in the system since the Covid-19 warning. If you have a septic system even “flushable” wipes can cause issues with your system so please think before you flush. Thank you for your cooperation.
