LOCAL NEWS-
Many cities across the valley are having problems with clogged sewer pipes and Crookston is no different, according to Public Works Director Pat Kelly, who says the city has problems with the “flushable wipes”.  “They are advertised as flushable, but they don’t break down in the system and they pile up in the pipes and clog up the lines,” said Kelly.  “Toilet paper is the only thing that should be going down the toilets.”  When the flushable wipes and other items get flushed down the toilet is takes a lot of time to clean the pumps.  “It is a lot of work to clean up the pumps.  We have to take them out and clean out the stuff, it plugs up the rakes and sometime the interceptor sewers and we will see some back up and it gets expensive,” said Kelly.  “We just installed a $60,000 chewer on one of the lift stations to help chew the stuff up, but we can’t do it at all the lift stations, so don’t put baby wipes or other materials in the toilet, just toilet paper.”
