Kickstart 2015 with Blue Drinks Toronto and wastewater expert Barry Orr.

“Flushable wipes” are a major problem for wastewater systems. Consumers believe they are purchasing products that are septic-safe. But “flushable wipes” aren’t as flushable as they claim to be. Instead, they clog septic systems across the continent costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to repair.

Expect to discuss flushable wipes as a community concern as well as a financial issue for municipalities. Join in this free event. Learn more about this important issue causing major damage.
