Due to the shortage of toilet paper that has developed during the Coronavirus pandemic, we would like to remind the residents of the City of Lincoln that flushing items other than toilet paper or human waste may damage your home’s lateral or the City sewer. If you choose to flush items other than toilet paper or human waste to the City’s sewer system, you may cause a back-up within your home. Per City ordinance 7-7-4-5, the homeowner will incur all costs due to events of this nature.
