Wet wipes, Clorox wipes, rags, and other non-dispersible items (those things that do not break down naturally) are troublemakers for plumbing and sewer lines. With the increased use of wipes during the pandemic, there is a rise in the chances for sewer spills and overflows attributed to these items being flushed and entering the MWA sewer system. Non-dispersible items not only clog sewer lines, but they can damage equipment and processes at the MWA Water Reclamation Facilities. Please do not flush these non-dispersible items down the toilet. Remember, the Toilet is not a Trashcan! For more information, including grease education about not pouring fats, oils, or grease down the sink, check out our "Learn More" link below. Learn More »

With hurricane season identified as June through November, these potentially devastating storms and other severe weather this summer and fall can threaten public safety.

If you are one who enjoys taking advantage of outdoor watering during the summer, which the state allows daily from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m., you may want to consider adding an irrigation meter to your account. MWA customers who add an irrigation meter to their account pay only the tap fee and not the meter fee for installation, which results in half the startup cost of a traditional tap and set fee. In addition, customers with irrigation meters don’t pay a sewer base fee or sewer consumption charges on that irrigation meter. Irrigation meters are designed ideally for residents seeking to improve the efficiency of their overall water consumption that includes outdoor watering for landscapes. For more information on how to apply for the advantages of an irrigation meter, please contact MWA Customer Care Representatives at 478-464-5600.
