The Camden County Municipal Utilities Authority has been noticing stuff in the sewers that shouldn’t be there. County Freeholder Jeffrey Nash says they’re dealing with materials commonly used to combat COVID-19.
“If items clog the sewer lines, then you can have wastewater backup into the streets and toilets and people’s homes,” Nash added. “That obviously is not something that we want to see in our community.”
Put the pandemic into the equation and there’s no good reason to send someone out to unclog the pipes.
So the county is pleading with people to just stop. Put toilet paper in the toilet. Anything else goes in the trash.
