But in a statement Friday, the city said this was unrelated to the situation in August, which it said was caused by residential construction on the property.
The city said the pipe clog was caused by non-flushable debris like shop towels and grease, and that it plans to add a liner to the interior of the pipe to prevent this from happening in the future and has set-up a routine cleaning cycle.
Simon said she’s pleased the city paid for a crew to help clean up the mess.
The city said the incident it a good remineder to residents of what can and cannot be flushed down the drain, saying in part:
“This is a great reminder to all our public that they play an important role in the functioning of the city’s waste systems and we have reinstituted our social media education programs to advise home-owners of what should not be flushed, there is a post from this week https://fb.watch/jtLOISya94/ , plus this site people can visit, Orlando.gov/WaterEducation . The best prevention to not have a recurrence not just here but anywhere in the collection system now and after the lining is completed is for all residents to not flush these types of debris.”
