Help Prevent Sewer Backups
Everyone can contribute to the success of sewer lines flowing freely whether it is in your home, business, apartment or public places.  Only two items are flushable – human waste and toilet paper.  All other items are to be disposed of in the trash.  “Disposable” or “flushable” wipes are not to be flushed as they do not break down like toilet paper and can clog the home’s plumbing system and/or the city’s sewage pumps.  F.O.G. (Fats, Oils and Grease) also contribute to clogged sewer pipes.  All grease and grease products should be disposed of in the trash.  City Emergency numbers:  City Hall (785) 442-3765, Aaron Leach (785) 741-1131 or Trevor Saunders (785) 741-4919
