To flush or not to flush?
When it comes to wet-wipes, there should be no question, according to Lebanon Public Works Director Terry Bland.
These wet wipes, which are advertised as flushable, are causing major problems inside the city’s sewer system and costing the City of Lebanon thousands of dollars. The wipes may go down the toilet, but they aren't breaking down as they course through the sewer system. Since January of 2016, the City of Lebanon has spent $92,000 to fix and replace sewer equipment, according to Bland.
