City crews clears backed up pipe caused by wipes, debris during Sunday rainstorm

Clogged Pipes City Of Spokane

SPOKANE, Wash. — The City of Spokane wants to remind residents that clean wipes clog pipes.

After Sunday’s rain storm, the City says the pipes at the Riverside Park Water Reclamation Facility were clogged with wipes and other debris flushed down toilets.

While many wipes advertise as being flush-safe, the City says that they clog pipes, and that residents should stick to toilet paper.
