Please be advised that the Town of Hampton’s Sanitary Sewer System is under stress due to the high water and flooding conditions we are currently experiencing. Although there are no issues at this time, the prolonged flooding may cause back-up situations. If you experience issues in your home and are connected to the Town sanitary sewer, please contact the Town of Hampton at 832-6065 (24 hour number). If you are experiencing issues and are on a septic tank field, please contact the Department of Health at 1-800-454-8008.
You can help reduce the impact on the sewer system by avoiding excessive prolonged use of water (I.e. large loads of laundry, dishwashers, etc.) until the water levels recede. Even if you are well away of the flooded areas, we ask that you be considerate of your neighbours and do what you can to reduce your water use at this time.
In consultation with the Town of Hampton, ASD-South will close the four Hampton area schools (Leatherbarrow, Hampton Elementary, Hampton Middle School and Hampton High School) on Friday, April 26th, due to the flooding situation and the impact on the sewer system.
The Town of Hampton will post updated flood information specific to our community on the Town of Hampton website (www.townofhampton.ca), Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/HamptonNB), and Twitter (twitter.com/TownOfHampton).
Anytime water goes over your wellhead, residents should assume that their well is contaminated and take the appropriate precautions. If you are a Town resident whose well is contaminated and you require drinking water, please call 832-6065.
