NOTICE OF WASTEWATER PUMP PROBLEM

Posted by on Tuesday, March 31st, 2020 in Hot Topics, Notices

ATTENTION RESIDENTS:

Travis County Water District No. 17 has been experiencing an ongoing problem with wastewater pumps in area neighborhoods clogging with ‘disposable’ wipes and rags.

Please do not flush any type of rag, swiffer sheet, mophead, DUST CLOTH, BABY/SANITARY WIPEs (even wipes labeled as disposable). These items can cause serious damage to the waste water system as well as lift station pumps resulting in unnecessary sewer backups.

  • If applicable, please advise your cleaning service(s) NOT to do so as well.
  • Please consider this subject for neighborhood meeting discussion.
  • Your assistance and action is of utmost importance.

Thank you for your assistance.
