Don’t Flush Wet Wipes

The Lexington Public Works Department is urging area residents not to flush wet wipes down the toilet.

Officials point out that unlike toilet paper, wet wipes may take weeks or months to dissolve, causing clogs and blockages. If the wipes make it through the sewer pipes, they can also cause major problems at the sewage treatment plant.
