Ballywalter Community check out the Dirty Dozen with NI Water.[/caption]
NI Water has recently recruited members of Ballywalter Community Group to help save water in their day-to-day lives, as well as in the ongoing battle to keep the ‘Dirty Dozen’ out of our sewers!
The ‘Dirty Dozen’ are the twelve most common inappropriate items the public flush and dump down our sewers.
The ring leader is the innocent looking Baby Wipe, closely followed by the Sanitary Towel.
These ordinary household items head a gang of everyday products that cause mayhem with the sewer system when flushed down the toilet or dumped in the sewers.
NI Water spends £2.5 million every year keeping our sewers clean. This is money which could be invested into our water or wastewater infrastructure.
