The state of California is suffering at the hands of their own bad decisions. Millions of people in the state are suffering like so many across the country with a lack of supply of toilet paper and other needed commodities. California ordered all of its people to stay at home and do nothing as the time ticks on towards normality. But one thing that they did not count on is an increase in the number of other things that would be happening along the way.
People without toilet paper are left using what they have on hand to clean themselves. Those that hoarded all the paper products left everyone else to wonder where all of it went. There is no explanation as to why toilet paper is selling out first. California’s leaders complain about having to clear clogged pipes of t-shirts and other items, but maybe they should stock toilet paper, so it stops. People cannot keep soiled items around their homes because of health issues. The natural thing to do is send it to the sewer.
Big retail stores can restock their shelves, but they clear just as fast. Smaller stores are having a harder time getting the items in, so they can be resold to the public. The people are turning to other things such as wet wipes and other paper products to take care of bathroom business. What goes into the bathroom will have to leave the bathroom through the sewer systems.
Wastewater officials in Redding, California have already had to remove T-shirts and other items from the sewer. It caused a major backup of the system. The clogs are not just happening on the street but also in the lift stations. A clog here can cause major health issues and spills. It is time for the crazy liberals to stop flushing their items down the toilet. Toilet paper should be the only item making its way to the treatment plant.
One water expert stated that “Clogs in the sewer system can cause fecal matter to back up into showers, toilets, and sinks, putting the community at large at risk for another health crisis.” Most people have just become accustomed to letting it rip and out of the house it goes. But in the end, they really should be better educated as to what can be flushed and what needs to be bagged and tossed.
In Napa, they had to remove a large pile of wet wipes from the systems. These other paper products do not dissolve in the water as toilet paper does. They stay in one piece and as they accumulate it shuts the system down. The people of Napa are pleading with residents to “Please help us keep our sewer system healthy and flowing smoothly. Remember to never flush wipes, paper towels, or tissues because they clog the pipes!”
It is insane what people have to be told. The liberals have done a good job of not informing America. People have to be told how to wash their hands and what they can and cannot flush down the toilet. It is like all the disease of the Democrats is spreading through the country. Democrats have no concept of reality. They overreact and make rash decisions on things before thinking things through.
The water treatment division of Napa also stated that “We know that wipes are a tricky item- especially with packaging that labels many wipes as ‘flushable.’ We just want to be sure we clear up any confusion and share that there are no truly flushable wipes.” The toilet paper is coming. People just need to hold it a little while longer. If they truly have to go that bad, then throw the towel away and do not flush it.
Toilet paper in the United States is made in the country. This is a good thing as supply is readily available when there is a shortage. People need to be patient and ration what they have. There will be more toilet paper shortly. Just ask all the hurricane victims that live with empty shelves during parts of the year. Things will eventually return to normal.
