  1. 9/26/2008 GREASE IS NOT THE ONLY PRODUCT HARMFUL TO SEWERS
  2. Grease is not the only substance that can cause problems in sewers. Many household chemicals, plant fertilizers, pesticides, and medicines can be toxic by themselves or when mixed with other substances. These chemicals pose health risks to wastewater collection system and treatment plant employees. They can also affect biological organisms used to treat wastewater at treatment plants. All of the above referenced substances should be disposed of properly. Platte Canyon customers may call Tri County Health Department at 303-761-1340, the Environmental Health Division to determine how to dispose of household wastes in a safe manner.
