ATTENTION NCN CITIZENS:
IN THE MATTER OF HEALTH AND SAFETY NCN PUBLIC WORKS ASKS CITIZENS TO PREVENT SEWAGE BLOCKAGES
It has come to our attention that people are flushing items down the toilet such as: material, fabric disposable towels (e.g. Lysol wipes), baby wipes, sanitary napkins, cut-up T-shirts, etc. Please be advised that these items are not intended to be flushed down the toilet and can cause serious clogs and damage to the community’s sewer/septic system.
NCN Residents are also reminded: putting bacon grease; animal fat, or automotive grease down drains can cause severe build up and plug sewage lines. This can also cause toilet and sewer line blocks that prevent proper flushing resulting in foul sewage back-up into resident’s house and crawl space. Fat, oil and grease should be properly disposed of in the trash and not poured down drains or toilets.
The NCN Housing Authority and NCN Public Works asks for the cooperation of homeowners to improve water services in the community. Your cooperation is appreciated!
Contact the Public Works Department (204)-484-2597 or Housing Authority (204)-484-2422 if you have concerns with drains or leaks.
