Message from the Mayor

Do not flush

Citizens of Strawberry Point-

During this time of uncertainty, we want to remind you of a problem many cities are facing that has a simple solution.

The City of Strawberry Point wants residents to be aware that wipes that are sold as “flushable” are in fact not flushable for the city’s sewer pipes. Flushing of wipes causes the city to spend thousands of dollars on premature equipment repair and replacement. Wipes snag on any imperfection in sewer pipes, catch passing debris and grease, and create a “ball” that will grow to eventually plug the pipe. The wipes get drawn into sewer-lines and wastewater treatment plant pumps and clog and damage the pumps. The city must manually clear out the pumps or remove the clogs.  

Please do your part to prevent this from being an added strain on our city’s resources. Thank you for being mindful of this at all times, not just during this time of hardship.

Mayor Hannah Evans
