WASTEWATER SYSTEMS & PRIVATE SEPTIC TANKS:

This is something to be aware of regarding wipes being flushed:
 
Please help us get the word out: DO NOT FLUSH WIPES, even if the package says “flush able.” Throw them in your trash can. Wastewater system staff have to clean them out of pumps, pipes, and screens BY HAND, increasing their risk of exposure to COVID-19, which may survive in feces for two to 14 days. Google it – disinfectant wipe clogging has become an emergency in many states.
 
The same is true of private septic systems. Reports from around Vermont indicate that more septic tanks are being pumped out; this waste is then taken to municipal sewer plants – which are facing a big increase in seepage and can’t handle any more! Please remind residents to flush only pee, poo, and toilet paper, for their own and the community’s health
 
Thank you.

Betty Ritter, Town Clerk/Treasurer

PLEASE continue to follow the recommended guidelines of the CDC and the VT Department of Health: wash your hands, practice “social distancing”; avoid large gatherings; and if feeling unwell with symptoms of the virus, stay home and call your primary care physician. We have been told not to go to the Emergency Room or Express Care to call your primary care physician instead.  YOUR continued good health is the primary concern.  Stay healthy, follow the guidelines, keep positive, and know “this too will pass”.
