The City of New Hampton is reminding all residents to flush ONLY toilet paper in the sanitary sewer system. Disinfectant wipes, baby wipes, paper towels are NOT to be flushed. According to Tim Angell, Wastewater Treatment Plant Superintendent for the City of New Hampton, those items such as wipes and paper towels DO NOT break down like toilet paper and create sewer backups in the sanitary sewer lines and possibly your home. Thank you for assisting the City of New Hampton. Stay Safe!!
