The San Antonio Water System (SAWS) helped spread the message about the causes of pipe clogs by taking to Twitter during the city’s annual Fiesta San Antonio, held each year in April. Using #WipesClogsPipes, SAWS awarded sparkling toilet medals with the slogan “wipes clog pipes,” to daily winners of Twitter “pot” quizzes.

WEF Highlights Showcases Flushables Outreach Efforts

As the nondispersibles issue continues to grow, utilities are turning to humor to educate the public. In the footsteps of the Singing Sewermen from Thames Water (London), utilities are creating unique and humorous public service announcements (PSAs) and campaigns to educate the public about what can and cannot go down the drain or toilet.
