2022 Water Master Plan Amendment Environmental Assessment (EA)

 

Please do not flush disinfectant wipes or paper towels down the toilet.

Disinfecting wipes and other items should be properly disposed of in the trash, not in the toilet. These wipes and other items do not break down in sewer or septic systems and can damage your home’s internal plumbing as well as local wastewater collection systems and treatment plants. Even wipes labeled “flushable” will clog pipes and interfere with sewage collection and treatment facilities. As a result, flushing these wipes can clog your toilet and/or create sewage backups into your home or your neighborhood. Additionally, these wipes can cause significant damage to pipes, pumps, and other wastewater treatment equipment. Sewer backups can be a threat to public health and present a challenge to our water utilities by diverting resources away from the essential work being done to treat and manage our nation’s wastewater. Disinfecting wipes, baby wipes, and paper towels should NEVER be flushed.
We are asking Lockwood residents to not flush wipes, paper towels, rags or anything other than toilet paper down the toilet, but instead to throw them in the trash to avoid backups and overflow.

 

Assistance for property owners to connect to the public sewer system

The Renewable Resource Grants to Private Entities program can be used to reimburse a property owner for abandoning an existing septic tank and drainfield and for the connection to a sewer service line at the property line.

  • The property owner would have to apply for reimbursement which is based on submittal of invoices and the application.
  • The program covers 25% of the project cost up to a maximum of $5,000.
