The New Minas Water Commission would like to remind all customers that ‘flushable wipes’ are not flushable. Wipes are classified as garbage; they do not breakdown and they get caught up in the wastewater treatment system. This is costly both to you as a resident and the Village during this critical time.
At a time when people are self isolating at home due to COVID-19, we must do what we can to avoid issues associated with sewer backups. Please be aware and do not flush ‘flushable wipes’.
