Few things last forever. Concrete and clay sewer pipes are among those things that don’t. Much of the sewer pipe running under city streets in older sections of Rogers are in serious need of rehabilitation, said Rogers Water Utilities officials.
Residents can help prevent clogged sewer lines by remembering a toilet is not trash can.
Things that shouldn’t be flushed:
• Baby diapers
• Baby wipes
• Rags or towels
• Cotton swabs
• Swiffer-type cloths
• Cleaning sponges
• Plastic items
• Latex gloves
• Sanitary napkins
