Flushing Awesome | King County Sewage Treatment Warns Against Flushing Baby Wipes

We have been telling our Yakima customers for years about the effects that baby wipes and disinfectant wipes have on their sewer drain pipes. The King County Water Treatment Division has released a new campaign labeled "This Is Flushing Awesome". A spin off of Macklemore's "Thriftshop" to help get people's attention about the devastation of flushing items down the toilet that ultimately cause the price of sewage treatment to soar. The disposal of foreign objects that end up at the treatment centers in Yakima county or anywhere else cost the consumer extra money on their water and sewer bill. The non-sewage waste has to be separated and hauled to a garbage landfill.









Do your part to help lower these needless costs by never flushing baby wipes, counter wipes, feminim products or any other solid waste that doesn't degrade in water.



Let's all be Flushing Awesome.
