Droughts and Water Restrictions

Drought conditions and other factors may require water conservation restrictions to be enacted.   Visit our Water Restrictions page to learn about restrictions and the current status of our water supply.

 

Help Prevent Sewer Clogs and Back Ups

A baby wipe after it has been flushed, gone through the collection system, and pulled from a pump station.Disposable does not mean flushable.  Cleaning wipes, baby wipes, and other moist towelettes that are described as ‘flushable’ do not dissolve, but they do accumulate in our sewer system causing clogs and back ups.

The Maynard Water and Sewer Division encourages you to minimize the use of disposable wipes and to discard used wipes in the trash rather than flushing them.

Don't flush: Disposable Wipes, Dental Floss, Paper Towels, Feminine Products, Cotton Balls, Bandages, Syringes or Needles, GumDo Flush: Toilet Paper, Human Waste, Pet Waste
