Announcements

Water Conservation in Effect
This public announcement is for Groton Water Department customers only and does not restrict West Groton Water Customers or residences with private wells.

Due to the lack of winter and spring precipitation and the extremely heavy demand being placed on the water supply system, the Groton Water Department is sending out this reminder notice that we are currently under a Water Conservation Program.

Outside watering is on an Odd/Even schedule based on your house number. Watering is prohibited to everyone on Mondays.If the demand for water does not decrease and we continue to find consumers not complying with the Odd/Even watering program, we will need to further restrict the outside watering program or eliminate it altogether.

The Staff at the Groton Water Department are closely monitoring our pumping capabilities and those not complying with our Water Conservation Program.

Please make every effort to comply with the Summer Water Conservation Program. If you have any questions with the Water Conservation Program, please call the Groton Water Department at 1-978-448-1122
