Do NOT put paper products such as paper towels, moist towelettes, tissues, wipes, disposable towels, diapers, sanitary napkins, and feminine products, including so-called flushable wipes, down any drains, including your toilets.

The only paper product that should be flushed is toilet paper. Flushing anything else will cause sewer backups in your home and operational problems at your treatment plant.

The Harris County MUD 165 sewer system has been experiencing operational problems at the Harris County MUD 165 sewer plant along with various sewage pumping stations and public sewer mains throughout the area. The cause of the problem relates directly to the products and materials discharged from property owners to the Harris County MUD 165 public sewer mains.

There is an easy way to prevent sewer problems: Don’t flush wipes.
