Protect Your Pipes Campaign


COG and the Community Engagement Campaign manage the Protect Your Pipes public education campaign about proper care of household plumbing, including information on keeping unwanted items from being flushed down toilets and poured down drains. Many household items can cause sewer pipe clogs resulting in costly upkeep for homeowners and the region’s wastewater treatment plants.  Problems of this nature cost COG’s wastewater utilities millions of dollars each year in additional maintenance and repairs. Visit www.protectyourpipes.org for more information about safe disposal of household grease, wipes, medications and other materials, and how to protect household pipes from freezing.
