The flushable wipes bill, SF 2525, will be heard on the Senate floor on Thursday, May 19. This bill addresses an issue raised by many of our cities – so-called “flushable wipes” getting trapped in sewer systems. There have been sewer back-ups, broken equipment and equipment malfunctions and other problems as a result of people flushing these products down the toilet. This bill prohibits manufacturers from labeling the products as “flushable” unless they meet certain standards.
Contact your senator TODAY and ask him or her to vote in favor of SF 2525!
