The Hi-Desert Water District is working to keep water and sewer services available. You can help by only flushing toilet paper down the drain. Here is assignment reporter Keith Bailey to tell you why….
Keep Yucca Valley’s sewer functioning properly while sheltering in place. Do not flush wipes, diapers, or paper towels. These are not made to break down in the pipes. Flushing these items will plug up the system and keep the system from functioning properly. Throw these items in the trash. You should also throw grease in the trash. When grease meets wipes, diapers, or paper towels, a cement light blockage is formed and can ruin pumps and stop the sewer from flowing to the treatment facility. The Hi-Desert Water District wants you to keep it simple, and only flush toilet paper down the drain.
