Recently, the Fall River Sewer Utility has experienced an increase in wastewater pumping station malfunctions due to “disposable” cleaning items and wipes entering the wastewater stream. Many cleaning products labeled “disposable” or even “flushable” can cause problems for homeowners and the Village. Disinfecting wipes, Swiffer mop refills, baby wipes, and other products made from similar materials should be disposed of in the trash- never flushed down a toilet. These items do not dissolve or break down after being flushed and can clog household sewer pipes, resulting in an expensive and messy repair and clean-up for a property owner. If these items find their way into the Village’s sewer system, they can clog pipes and pumps in the Village’s sewer pumping stations. This leads to expensive repairs and potential interruptions in sewer service.
Please help ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the Village’s wastewater system by disposing of these products properly: in the trash.
COOLING CENTER- The Village Hall will be open during business hours as a Cooling Center. If you have any special needs please call and we will do our best to help you.
The month of the August the DPW will be flushing the water mains as a annual maintenance.
