Important Reminder from the Shrewsbury Water and Sewer Division - Please Only Flush Toilet Paper

Sewer System Critical Message

We understand that toilet paper is in short supply but even "flushable" wipes are not flushable.  Several communities have reported major issues with their sewer system due to products other than toilet paper being flushed.  Not only does this lead to expensive repairs and could cause a backup impacting your home, it requires a response from our crew who we are working to strategically utilize to ensure coverage through these challenging times.  Please help us maintain the sewer system by flushing no products other than toilet paper. 


If you have any questions please contact the Shrewsbury Water and Sewer Division at watersewer@shrewsburyma.gov or 508-841-8506.
