How You Can Help
The Flush Fund was originally funded by corporate sponsors, but has been sustained by individual donations since 2001.
Customers like you have made this program a reality but it is up to all of us to keep it going through continued donations.
There is a new option for “Flush Fund” contributions. It is now possible to choose a donation amount and have it automatically added to your sewer bill. To sign up, click here.
Your contribution of any amount marked in the donation box when you send in your sewer bill is tax deductible and will be used to fund this worthy cause.
Thank you to all the individual donations that have been received through out the year. The Flush Fund could not continue without your support.
