CONCORD TOWNSHIP SEWER DEPARTMENT

PLEASE: Only flush toilet paper down the toilet! 
Dear Homeowners,

Many Americans appear to be following the recommendations of public health officials to clean and sterilize frequently touched surfaces in their homes. Many are then depositing disinfectant wipes, paper towels and other paper products into the toilet.

The result has been a coast-to-coast surge in backed-up sewer lines and overflowing toilets. Plumbers and public officials are pleading with Americans to spare the nation’s pipes from further strain.

Most urban sewage systems depend on gravity and water flow to move toilet paper and waste. They were not designed to accommodate disinfectant wipes and paper towels, which do not break down as easily and will clog the system.

Please, only flush toilet paper down the toilet.

Concord Township Sewage Facilities (Act 537) Plan
The Concord Township Act 537 Plan provides for the establishment of individual Sewer Planning Districts to be used as a basis for evaluating sections of the Township for public sewer service projects or continued individual onsite disposal systems.  If future evaluations of a District requires a change or modification to the sewage disposal method, an Act 537 Special Study will be performed to further detail alternatives in the District.
