Residents reminded to only flush toilet paper
April 9, 2020
SEELEY LAKE – During this time of toilet paper shortages across the country, local owner of Rockn-B Septics Norman Bernstrauch reminds those on septic systems to put used handi wipes, disinfectant wipes and paper towels in the trash. Flushing them down the toilet can result in clogs in their septic system and, in worse case scenarios, can require homeowners to replace their entire drain field.
Bernstrauch has owned Rockn' B Septic for the past seven years. In his tenure he has had several customers that flushed handi wipes because the product claims they are flushable.
