DON’T FLUSH WIPES DOWN THE TOILET, Officials Warn

While it makes sense to buy disinfectant wipes, hand sanitizer and facemasks during the COVID-19 pandemic, toilet paper has been flying off the shelves too, leaving many confused and toilet-paper less.

People have already started using common alternatives like wet wipes and cutting paper tower rolls into pieces.  While the substitutes are creative, it’s important to remember that these innocent alternatives will cause serious consequences because only toilet paper should be flushed down your toilet. 

Personal wipes are especially misleading because they are often labeled “flushable” but they can clog sewer pipes and create “fatbergs”- enormous piles of goop, grease and garbage in the sewers.  In 2018, a 100-foot long, 11-foot-wide, 6-foot-thick fatberg weighing 19 tons was found in southeast Michigan’s Macomb County.  This fatberg restricted flows and damaged sewer lines.  It cost the County about $100,000 to remove.

Please don’t flush baby wipes, cleaning wipes, tissues, paper towels, dental floss, cotton balls or swabs, cat litter, grease, prescription drugs or cigarette butts.  All of these have a tendency to collect in your sewers and will clog it.  Remember, just because it says it’s “flushable” doesn’t mean it is.  My two-year old’s stuffed Tiger was flushed down the toilet along with a few plastic army men.  Guess what?

Thomas Township welcomes Saginaw Control & Engineering to its Great Lakes Tech Park located on Graham Road just north of Gratiot.  On November 28, 2018 the Thomas Township Planning Commission reviewed and approved the site plan for Saginaw Control which was presented by Rick Keith of Wolgast Design Group, who is the designer on the project. 

The building will be constructed on nearly 40 acres with offices measuring 22,600 square feet and warehouse and manufacturing measuring roughly 120,000 square feet.  Business is going well for Saginaw Control & Engineering because this new construction is in addition to the existing plant location on M-47 and Gratiot in Saginaw Township.  This is considered a new plant expansion. 

The exciting project will see around 35 new employees to run the expansive new building.  The project is only the start, with future space for up to 3 more similar sized additions in the future.  The building permit was issued to Pumford Construction in February, and you can see work has started already.  It is projected that the full construction will be completed in about 10 months.
