Officials with Miami-Dade’s water and sewer department have a simple message with more people at home during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic: think before you flush.

The county has created a public service campaign in recent days in an effort to educate residents – an effort that has grown in need with recent “stay in home” orders put in place in cities such as Miami and Miami Beach.

Toilet paper can be flushed in your bathroom toilet, but officials remind you that items such as paper towels and feminine hygiene products are not flushable.

The county has also launched a campaign to remind residents of regulations and restrictions when it comes to watering your lawn during the ongoing pandemic, a concern amplified in recent days with drier weather in the forecast.
