A town of rich history, Le Roy, IL has something to interest everyone. The community of nearly 4,000 is family oriented and enjoys various park, recreation and dining options. It is seated on the hub of Interstate 74 and state highways 150 and 136, providing easy access to the amenities of Bloomington-Normal and Champaign-Urbana.
LEROYANS: This is not a bucket full of mud. It is a bucket full of intertwined “flushable” wipes that was pulled out of the sewage lift station that serves several of our subdivisions. The pump was 100% plugged with “flushable” wipes, and the pump on the lift station burned up, as a consequence. Replacement will cost between $3,500 and $5,500, depending upon damage to the motor. Money we shouldn’t have to spend.
“Flushable” wipes do not dissolve like toilet paper, and if they can cause this much damage to one of our pumps, they can do the same to your private lines, sewer mains, and other pumps. If they cause blockage to private lines, that’s a resident issue and expense.
Please DO NOT FLUSH those “flushable” wipes. They need to go in your garbage toters, and not in your toilets.
Please help us get the word out, so this situation doesn’t occur again. “Flushable” wipes may flush, but they do not dissolve. And this happens.
