Cookie dough from a Madison County manufacturer is clogging up Canton Municipal Utilities lines, officials said Tuesday during a meeting of the CMU Board of Commissioners.

CMU General Manager Kenny Wayne Jones said that excess cookie dough from the DeBeukelaer Corporation, which is famous for its Pirouline wafers, is clogging up the lines.

The company is located at 228 Industrial Drive North in Gluckstadt.  

“We seem to spend a lot of time out there,” Jones said. “It’s clogging it up. They need an accurate way of disposing it.”

Jones said the corporation denied the problem was on their end but Jones said they have photos of cookie dough stuck and settled on the bottom of the line.

“I told them we had pictures of that cookie dough in the line too,” he said, noting Hederman Brothers has started to complain about the line.

Hederman Brothers announced they were moving from Ridgeland to Gluckstadt last year.

CMU commissioners gave Jones and attorney Barbara Blackmon the authority to meet with company executives and work on an agreeable means to disposal of the excess cookie dough.

Former CMU GM John Wallace, who was hired as a consultant for CMU, said when the workers clean the equipment that is when the cookie dough is accumulated and that the company wasn’t just dumping waste down the line.

Calls were placed to DeBeukelaer for comment went unreturned.
