Wessex Water Services, a water supply and sewage utility company in South West England, has a modest social media fan following. The company uses their platform to educate communities and spread the word about the detrimental effects that wet wipes have on sewer systems world wide.
After dealing with several previous hefty sewage clogs from the non-flushables, Wessex Water preached to the public that they do not break down and are not to be flushed. Despite these warnings, the company has recently been faced with another large clog in the system. They continue to share photos as the crews remove the mess of wipes from the system in order to further spread the word to stop flushing non-flushables.
