GLSD’s COVID-19 Preparedness Plans

The GLSD continues to monitor the situation with the spread of COVID-19.  We have preparedness plans in place to ensure that our sewer collection system stays operational in the face of any limited staffing due to illness.  We cannot stress enough – please do not flush any wipes, facial tissue, or paper toweling down your toilet.  Only toilet tissue dissolves completely within a sewer collection system.  Wipes, facial tissue, and paper toweling can clog pipes and pumps potentially causing major impacts to individual home piping as well as the GLSD sewer collection system.  

We have also been in contact with Waste Management to ensure garbage collection continues without disruption within the GLSD.  Waste Management has taken precautionary measures to ensure the health of its staff and they don’t foresee any collection stoppage.  

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call us here at the GLSD (920) 295-4488.
