Gwinnett County Lateral Inspection Program
The Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources offers the Lateral Inspection Program to help property owners understand their level of responsibility for private sewer laterals and their role in protecting homes, businesses, and the environment from sewage backups.
Don't Flush "Flushable" Wipes
|Many personal hygiene wipes and cleaning products are marketed as being flushable, yet these products cause significant damage to the County’s collection system and cost homeowners hundreds of dollars in plumbing repairs. Consumer Reports put together a video to show how toilet paper breaks down readily, in comparison to flushable wipes. |
|To prevent these problems from happening to you, avoid flushing rags, wipes, feminine hygiene products, and other fibrous materials down the toilet. Please dispose of these items in the trash.|
