WJLA reporter Kevin Lewis digs deep to look at the problem of wipes clogging sewer pipes in Montgomery County, MD. He even features a Channel Monster sewage grinder in his report. The grinder is located in one of the local pump stations and notes grinders have not yet been installed in all of the agency’s pump stations.
“It’s a huge problem. It’s expensive for us to install this equipment, and ultimately our ratepayers have to pay for it,” said Lyn Riggins, WSSC spokeswoman. “Your toilet is not a trash can.”
