Pippa Bell Ader was a member of Westport’s Septic Education Task Force. She says: “In this current situation, many residents may be unaware of the damage certain items can do to septic systems. The last thing anyone needs is a septic failure, especially when we are spending more time at home.
“If you have a septic system, don’t toss paper towels, Kleenex, coffee grounds or non-degradable products such as cat litter, grease or personal hygiene products down the drain or toilet.”

Or — more pleasurably — check out the mockumentary below: “Pump It Up, Baby!” It was written by Westporter Helen Martin Block, and “stars” plenty of local people.
It’s worth watching even if you don’t have a septic system. What else would you today?
