Please prevent sewer backups

Article Published 01/26/2016

Sewer backups are an unexpected hazard that can occur for a number of reasons, some of which Layton residents can control. 
Monitoring what items you are flushing or pouring in the sewer system can help prevent backups.
For example, "flushable" wipes are NOT sewer friendly and best put into the trash instead.
-Here's a list of other things that should never be flushed down the toilet:
Paints and solvents
Gasoline or fuels
Toxic chemicals
Antifreeze
Medicines and pharmaceuticals
Fats, oils and greases
Baby wipes
Needles and razor blades
Poisons
Fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides
