Announcements

8/9/16 Water Ban Issued for Irrigation

The Board of Water Commissioners voted on August 4, 2016, to institute a complete water ban on all lawn watering and lawn irrigation until further notice.

Middlesex County and Groton, MA is listed as being in a “SEVERE DROUGHT” by the Department of Environmental Protection. The “Drought Watch” status is due to the lack of precipitation over the past 12 to 18 months. This has left our aquifers at extremely “low” levels. In addition, we are seeing increased summer demands for lawn watering. This puts pumping capabilities at our wells at a critical point that we must continue to monitor and address daily. The Groton Water Department understands that this restriction is severe, but we need sufficient supplies of water for every day needs such as cooking and bathing and fire protection. The long term forecast for the next 30 to 45 days is for very little precipitation. 

Customers not complying with the new restrictions may be levied with a fine of $50.00 for the first offense and $100.00 for the second offense and/or terminated from service.

Approved uses are as follows:

  1. Hand held watering or slow drip irrigation of flower or food gardens and newly planted trees and shrubs.
  2. Charitable car washes as approved by the Water Superintendent
  3. Institutional watering of athletic fields as approved by the Water Superintendent
  4. Water customarily used in construction as approved by the Water Superintendent
  5. Water used in the agriculture.
  6. All other specific uses as approved in writing by the Water Superintendent on a case by case basis

Washing of cars and filling and/or topping off of swimming pools is prohibited.

If you have any questions regarding this year’s Water Conservation Program, please do not hesitate to contact our offices, Monday through Friday during normal business hours at 978-448-1122.
