Think before you flush

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on April 6, 2020

The Citrus County Water Resources Utility Division needs your cooperation in protecting the County’s wastewater infrastructure, particularly during this time.  Customers are cleaning more regularly with disinfecting wipes and may be using alternative items for toilet paper such as napkins, paper towels, baby wipes, or “flushable” wipes. 

Think before you flush

Please remember to place these items in the trash as they may NOT be flushed down the toilet.  These items do not break down in the sewer system and may cause severe clogs, pump failures, and treatment issues.  It is important to only dispose of human waste and toilet paper in the toilet.

Items that should never be flushed or placed down any drain:

Disposable wipes, wet wipes, disinfecting wipes, or baby wipes (even if marked “flushable”)

Paper towels
Gloves and/or medical supplies
Facial wipes
Feminine hygiene products
Cotton swabs/cotton balls
Dental floss
Medicines or vitamins
Cigarette or cigar butts

As we all work together as a community to combat the spread of COVID-19 we need everyone’s help to prevent additional public health challenges.  Please remember to “think before you flush.”
