An effort is underway to permanently protect Arch Cape's drinking water.  This will:

*  Increase the total quantity of water available

*  Increase the quality of that water

*  Provide public access of the forest

*  Provide recreational value to the public

*  Support local community priorities with revenues from sensitive land management

*  Permanently protect conservation values

Non-flushable items relate to hundreds of thousands of dollars in future costs to the Arch Cape Sanitary District when they are flushed down the toilet, as they shorten the lifespan of essential equipment at the wastewater treatment plant such as membrane filters, air diffusers, and pumps.  The cost of these preventable problems are ultimately absorbed by rate payers, in the form of higher sewer bills.

These items should never be flushed !
