What Does That Do?
This is MVSD's series on our wastewater treatment process and how we keep things flowing from your homes and businesses. Come learn with us and find out, "What Does That Do?"
You flush and the wastewater travels through a series of pipes and starts the treatment process here! Bar screens remove large debris that could damage plant equipment further downstream. In this picture, the screens have caught a feminine hygiene product and a cleaning wipe; both examples of things not to flush down the toilet. These non-flushable items don't just clog, they damage equipment and your sewer lateral at home. You should only flush the 3 P's - pee, poop, and toilet paper.
Come back soon to learn more about what these things do at Mt. View Sanitary District!
