Toronto Water launches “Not Down the Drain”

Issue date: October 5, 2017

Every day many items are flushed down toilets or poured down drains that should not be. These items, such as fat, oil, grease, wipes and dental floss, can cause:
• Damage or blockages to home plumbing, which could lead to basement flooding
• Damage or blockages to the City's sewer pipes located under the streets, which could lead to basement flooding
• Damage to pumping stations and wastewater treatment plants
• Harm to the environment and aquatic habitat in the Lake, local streams and rivers
