Sewer System Wiped Out

Teton County Dispatch received reports Tuesday of septic smells from near the intersection of Kelly and Vine all the way to the intersection of Maple Way and Powderhorn. The culprit was a blockage in the sewer systems caused by flushable wipes. The Town of Jackson is asking you to spread the word to everyone you know not to put “Wet Wipes” in the toilet; even if they are labeled flushable or septic safe. Public Works crews reported that the blockage Tuesday, caused by ‘flushable wipes’, cleared itself sometime between 4:30 and 5:00 pm, and when the blockage cleared itself, there was a surge in flow that caused stagnant sewer gases to flow up and out of manholes. This in turn, caused a wave of sewer smells in much of east Jackson. The “bottom line” (so to speak) is that flushable wipes, really aren’t that flushable.
