Sodium Chloride in Softeners
Additionally, the Authority's regulation against using sodium chloride in water softeners continues in place even if the regeneration water does not go into the sewer system. Authority regulations are considered legal ordinances and severe penalties exist for their violation including fines of up to $500.00 plus the cost of prosecution. Continued violation could result in up to 90 days in jail.
Section 8.1.2 of the Sewer Authority's Rules & Regulations says a user (that's you!) shall not contribute wastewater containing substances which may cause interference with the operation of the wastewater treatment facility. The Sewer Authority has determined that even flushable wipes do cause such interference and therefore are prohibited to be flushed into our sewer system.
