I guess "flushable" wipes aren't so flushable after all.

The Charleston Water System in South Carolina had to send divers through nearly 100 feet of sewage to unclog what's known as a "fatberg," a congealed lump in a sewer system formed by the combination of non-biodegradable solid matter such as baby wipes or "flushable" wipes.

Those poor divers!
