Please Do Not Flush Reminder

In the past, the Bass Lake Conservancy District has had problems with inappropriate items being flushed into the sewer system:  including diapers, depends, feminine products, cleansing wipes, and paper toweling. NOTE: Some cleaning and baby wipes state they are bio-degradable, but they don't break down before reaching the pumping stations.   Please DO NOT dispose of any of these items in the toilet. The lift stations are unable to pump these items through the lines to the treatment plant.  As a result, pumps are clogged and damaged. In many cases it is possible to identify where these items originate; and a homeowner may be held responsible for any damage/repairs to the pumping station as a result of this negligence.   

FLUSH ONLY TOILET PAPER AND HUMAN WASTE PLEASE. 

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