“No Wipes Down the Pipes!!”

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has increased the demand for household cleaning items, including disinfecting wipes, paper towels and toilet paper. As a result, people have turned to alternatives such as so-called “flushable” wipes and other paper products. This can lead to clogged pipes at homes and in smaller sewer systems.  

In this educational video titled “No Wipes Down the Pipes!,” Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago President Kari K. Steele demonstrates how various products do not break down or dissolve sufficiently in water, and as a result, those materials can clog pipes in homes and cause sewer backups.

Posen Police Response Changes Due to Covid-19

Temporary Changes to Police Response Amid COVID-19(Posen, Ill.) –  

The Posen Police Department is taking temporary measures to ensure the safety of the public and the men and women who work for the Department.  Effective immediately, officers will no longer respond in person to low-level calls for service in an effort to protect the public and officers from coronavirus. The Posen Police Department is encouraging people to contact our non-emergency number at 708-385-3131 to report crimes that do not require an immediate response and if no one is in danger. Please provide the dispatcher with as much information as possible and an officer will be assigned to follow up with a phone call without risking exposure to the complainant or officer. Posen Police Officers will not be dispatched in person unless there is still a crime in progress or it is a serious offense requiring in-person attention. The Police Department is asking that people refrain from coming to the police department in person to report crimes unless it is an emergency.  Again, this is a temporary change in our policy in response to the COVID-19 virus. The Police Department will return to normal operation once the crisis subsides.
