Due to the current shortage of toilet paper, the City of Beaumont is sending this reminder concerning the sewer system.

Please do not flush items such as baby wipes, paper towels, rags, clothing, or other items not intended to be flushed. Flushing of these items will cause blockages in your sewer line and possibly the city’s main lines resulting in sewer backups. This also applies to the so-called “flushable wipes” which do not break down and commonly cause blockages. Any of these items, if used, must be placed in a garbage bag and placed inside your garbage can for collection.
