South Carolina officials warn about 'flushable' wipes after sending divers into 'raw sewage'

Thursday 15:26 GMT

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.

“As we expected, they came up with these large masses of wipes in their first two loads, with more to come,” officials with the water system wrote, adding divers also removed a baseball bat and a “big piece of metal." Divers swam through “wet/raw sewage" in "complete darkness," using their hands to find the source of the obstruction.
