Homestead Public Service (HPS) Water is requesting the assistance of its customers in protecting the wastewater system. Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak, people are cleaning and disinfecting more frequently with bleach wipes and potentially substituting other items for toilet paper, such as baby wipes and paper towels. HPS Water is asking customers to throw these items away in the trash and not flush them down the toilet. These items do not break down in the sewer lines and can cause significant clogs that could lead to sewage spills and pump system failures and treatment plant issues. It is important to only dispose of toilet paper and human waste in the toilet. Otherwise, it can cause costly clogs in your sewer system. Here is a list of items that should not be flushed down the toilet:
