Mayor Ruthanne Fuller reminds Newton residents:

Please do not flush any type of wipes down your toilet (whether they are labeled “flushable” or not). These items can clog your household plumbing, the pipes in the street, and the equipment at the treatment plant. These products are made of materials that do not dissolve quickly in water, if at all.

The above was printed in Mayor Fuller’s email to residents on March 18, 2020.
