14 How can you help your Water District ? Do not dispose of old medications or personal care products in the toilet. Remove or get a sink strainer for your garbage disposal and deposit all non-biodegradables in the trash. It costs you money to send these waste materials to the treatment plant, as someone must remove them. - the bugs at the treatment plant cant digest that stuff any more than you can. Also do not put disposable wipes down the toilet. These often plug up the lift station pumps. Conserve water use. This not only saves pumping costs but wear and tear on all components of both the water system and the sewer system.

15 Q and A What can we answer for you today?
