 Do Not Flush Clipart & Free Clip Art Images #19652 ...

 CAUTION: Baby wipes, paper towels, and even 'flushable' wipes may clog your sewer line and cause overflows.

Due to increased disinfection and sanitizing in our homes to protect ourselves and families, we ask that residents be mindful of the paper being flushed down the toilet. Our sewage collection system depends on gravity and enough water flow to move human waste and biodegradable toilet paper. The system was not designed for napkins, paper towels, flushable wipes and especially nylon wipes. These items can very easily clog the collection system and cause sewer backups in homes and on the ground. The City of Walker would like to thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this trying time as we strive to serve our community and ensure that we can provide basic utilities to our residents.

FIRE HYDRANT FLOW TESTING

 

Fire Management Solutions will be conducting fire hydrant flow testing throughout the City of Walker for the next month. The fire hydrant testing is necessary maintenance to gather information that will help determine proper Public Fire Protection Classification and fire insurance premiums. This week (March 9-13, 2020) they are working in the Pendarvis Lane area and will continue on to other areas of Walker. Residents may experience some discolored water due to the testing which is not harmful and is temporary.

 We appreciate your patience and understating while these hydrants are tested.

Waste Management has removed the recycle bin located on Ball Park Road.  The City has decided to discontinue recycling services due to continuous improper usage and contamination of recycling materials.   The City holds two city wide clean up days a year, and we will add a recycle bin on those occasions in the future.   You can contact Waste Management for other drop off locations near your area.
