Ruidoso Deploys Vactor Truck to Help Clean and Maintain Sewer Lines

cleaning teams were dispatched by village authorities in Ruidoso, New Mexico, to inspect, clean and maintain sewer lines early last month. Marian Mohr of Ruidoso News reported:

Village water and wastewater department crews are out in force cleaning sanitary sewers. This involves walking through and clearing any blockages. The process began with lanes blocked to one-way each way on Sudderth at Mechem. Village officials ask motorists to watch out and drive slowly around crews that are working on this project under rainy conditions.

Such a cleanup drive is a good precautionary measure to prevent sewer lines from accumulating huge amounts of debris and other clogging matter, since blockage would be practically inevitable otherwise. Different types of materials can build up inside sewer lines, but there is one seemingly unusual material in the list of usual culprits: “flushable” wet wipes.
