We hope the following information will be informative and helpful to you. The Sanitary District is a Non-Profit Service District. We are regulated by ORS 450 and State DEQ Regulations. We are monitored by a local Board of Directors.
There are three types of systems working within the sewer system. Depending on where you live, you are connected by one of the following: pressure system, vacuum system, or gravity system. As part of the new system, we have acquired 480 acres from the Forest Service. We put in 3 lagoons which range in size from .9 to 13.5 acres, plus 2-50 acre irrigation fields that are planted with orchard grass. To accomplish all of this, the District received $4.7 million in Federal Loans and approximately $3.5 million in Grants. The loan is to be paid back in 30 years.

Those wipes may say ‘flushable’ but don’t flush them
All sanitizing wipes, paper towels, rags, diapers, baby wipes and anything advertised as “flushable” should NOT be flushed down the toilet.
These materials are not biodegradable and can cause blockages in your home plumbing system as well as the district’s sewage collection system which can result in back-ups, overflows, and damage to sewage handling equipment.
Even though these wipes do eventually break down, they take a longer amount of time to do so compared to toilet paper. Since the breakdown of wet wipes aren’t as rapid, clogged pipes and blockages occur more frequently. Putting your home’s plumbing at risk for serious clogs translates to hefty plumbing bills for you.
