Groton Utilities sewage system is experiencing an increase in non-flushable items going through its system. Items such as wipes, rags, socks, paper towels, cotton balls and feminine hygiene products should never be flushed. They are trash and should be disposed of as such. Clogged sewer lines can cause sewage to back up into streets and into your home. Sewage system equipment can also be damaged, causing downtime and additional labor. Please be kind to your fellow residents who share your sewage system and only flush toilet paper and human waste.
