    South Carolina divers spend two days removing clogs of "flushable" wipes from sewer

    Saturday, October 20 2018 1:01 PM EDT2018-10-20 17:01:54 GMT

    Divers spent two days deep inside a South Carolina sewer, pulling out huge balls of oily, black used wet wipes and baby wipes that had clogged intake pumps. The Charleston Water System posted pictures of the masses of wipes on its Twitter account. It reminded people that only human waste and toilet tissue should be flushed. The cloth wipes, which have rapidly become popular, need to be thrown away because they are woven and don't break down in water.
