While we encourage and appreciate our residents’ efforts to disinfect during this Covid-19 outbreak, we would like to remind everyone that those Clorox and Lysol wipes should be thrown in the trash. Our sewer department is seeing an increase in wipes plugging the collection system pumps and pipes. Each time a pump gets plugged, an operator has to open it up and manually remove them, exposing themselves to the very same germs you were trying to avoid. Thank you for your efforts to keep our Village safe.
