Wipes & paper towels clog the sewer!
Important Notice on Tribal-supplied Water and Sewer
From Suquamish Community Development Utilities Office
Wipes & paper towels clog the sewer! We are all using more cleaning supplies in response to the COVID-19 Stay Home – Stay Healthy Order. High demand of disinfectant wipes and low supply of toilet paper has created a sanitation challenge. Please discard ALL paper towels, wipes, and personal hygiene products in the trash, not the toilet. This includes all items marketed as flushable or disposable. These items clog sewer lines and pumps.
Only toilet paper is safe to flush. If you are served by a Tribally-operated sewer system and observe an alarm, please call 360-979-0109.
Water Supply— Residents may experience periodic discolored water and/or low pressure during this period of high residential demand. If you are supplied by a Tribally-operated system and experience sustained color and/or a significant drop in water pressure, please call 360-979-0109.
