DO NOT FLUSH REMINDER

February 21, 2013

Once again the Bass Lake Conservancy District (BLCD) is experiencing problems with customers putting items into the sewer system that are plugging pumping station pumps.

PLEASE DO NOT FLUSH: diapers, depends, cleaning wipes, baby wipes, feminine items, or any toweling material.  Some cleaning and baby wipes state they are bio-degradable, but they don't break down before reaching the pumping stations. This can be a very costly repair due to clogging the pumps and possibly burning them up.

ONLY FLUSH TOILET PAPER AND HUMAN WASTE PLEASE.

Any questions please contact the BLCD office at 574-772-2974 or email – INFO@BLCD-IND.ORG.
