BAY CITY, MI., MARCH 18, 2020 – Bay City Wastewater Department Director Shoron Cooper encourages the public to take precautions and not flush "flushable wipes" down their toilets. The recent demand for flushable wipes and sanitary products to help address concerns relating to COVID-19 (coronavirus) has led him to issue a release to inform the public on what not to flush and the proper way to dispose of these items.
