W
e also want to remind residents not to flush any wipes or paper towels.

Industrial wastewater systems, as wells as septic fields, are not equipped to handle this material as they do not break down, causing clogs in pies and putting a strain on infrastructure.

Many commercial wipes labelled as "flushable" may go down the toilet and drain fine, but hit a bend in the system and can cause major substructure damage.

Please continue to follow recommended practices and behaviours for the mutual benefit of the entire community. For the latest information for Albertans on COVID-19, including updates on government actions, visit www.alberta.ca/covid19

The local COVID-19 call-in line is toll free – 1-855-627-5365.

You can submit a compaint to Alberta Health Services and a public health inspector will look into it. https://bit.ly/3aaOavL
