There are certain topics no one wants to think about. What goes down the drain is one of them. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Not for South Fort Collins Sanitation District. Everything all 45,000 people in the district flush down the toilet or rinse down the sink is our responsibility, including the things that shouldn’t go into our system.
Within the district, we have over 400 miles of collection lines we diligently monitor to maintain a high-quality, functioning wastewater system. While most items make it down your drain, they often get stuck later in the system resulting in damaging clogs and backups. We urge you to think about what you flush down your toilet and drains to help support our work.
