COVID-19 and CCCSD
Most of the CCCSD customers are making significant adjustments to their lives with the COVID-19 outbreak. Since many are spending more of their time at home, there has been a greater demand for paper products, particularly toilet paper. Retailers are finding it difficult to keep pace with customer demands. Understandably some residents have turned to alternatives which are incompatible with your sanitation system. Remember, the only flushable paper product is toilet paper. All other paper products should be discarded in your trash.
The following are tems are incompatible with your sanitation system. They should be put in your trash:
Paper Towels: Paper towels do not disintegrate the way toilet paper does when wet.
Baby wipes, disinfecting wipes, and so-called "flushable" or "bio-degradable" wipes are all detrimental to the wastewater collection system. These items can get hung up on pump impellers or combine with fats, oil and grease (FOG) to form large balls that block pipes.
Facial tissues: such as Kleenex, Puffs, etc.
Sponges, rags and towels
Cotton swabs, cotton balls: These do not disintegrate when wet the way toilet paper does.
The mission of the Central Clear Creek Sanitation District is to provide affordable, effective and efficient sanitation services for Central Clear Creek County which fully comply with federal and state regulations.
