South Carolina officials warn about 'flushable' wipes.

The Charleston Water System in South Carolina shows just how destructive flushing wipes can be.

Officials with the Charleston Water System in South Carolina were caught in a smelly situation last week. They had to send scuba divers roughly 80 to 90 feet down into “raw sewage” Thursday to clear heaping piles of wipes that clogged the system.

The Charleston Water System shared pictures of blackened masses on Twitter, warning residents wipes don't really disintegrate, though the packaging may claim they're “flushable."(see link below for full article and photos!)
