In this Spring issue of the newsletter:  The vast majority of sewer blockages today are caused by wipes (or other non-flushables) and/or fats, oils and greases adhering to the pipe walls. A new flushability standard called ‘Fine to Flush’ has recently been released. Andy Drinkwater from WRc tells us what this is and explains why it’s so important.

Please send us any news items that you would like to see included in our news and events pages.
