them. The traditional bar screens and
one directional screens have proven to
be no match for these wipes and often
allow significant quantities of wipes to
bypass into the system. Many facilities
are upgrading to two-directional fine
screens that can capture both the whole
wipe as well as non-disposable that have
been ground in the collections systems.
The future of the "flushables"

Consumers love wipes, so they are
here to stay. Public outreach and awareness surrounding what can and what
can't be flushed are effective shortterm measures for the wipes epidemic.
Much greater measures must be taken
to change consumer behaviors and to
protect wastewater treatment facilities
and their equipment.
Smarter pump station and treatment
facility designs and controlling how
waste is managed within a pump station is more reliable than anti-flushing
campaigns. With continued incorporation of proper screening and grinding
technology, the wastewater industry can
protect pumps and ensure that problems
from flushables are a thing of the past.
So, remember the 3 Ps when it comes
to flushing:
* Pee
* Poop
* and Paper
