Department of Public Works Goals
As residents are preparing for social distancing and self-isolation, please be aware of what types of products can be flushed down your toilet. Many people are choosing alternative bathroom paper products, such as wet wipes, baby wipes, cotton balls, and paper towels. Many of these products have marketing language that states they are flushable. However, these products are not flushable. Products other than toilet paper are not designed to be flushed down the toilet. They do not break down or disintegrate quickly enough and can clog your plumbing, your sewer lateral, and the mainline sewer. All hygiene products other than toilet paper should be thrown in the trash. A sewer backs up at this time, with limited cleaning supplies available, can spread other infections virus. Please remember "No Wipes Down the Pipes."
Stay informed about the current projects that may be effecting your residence or travel routes. We appreciate the patience and understanding of our community as we work to improve Sheboygan's streets, buildings, and general appeal.
