HINGHAM -- Managing Director Russell Tierney reports that the Weir River Water System (WRWS) has issued outdoor watering restrictions as of July 1 in response to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' recent declaration of a level 2 drought.
In an effort to stay within the limits of the Water Management Act registration constraints, stress on major components of the water treatment plant, strain on our resources and other factors, the WRWS is implementing the restrictions effective July 1 through Sept. 30. This will include odd/even watering schedules that are outlined on the WRWS website.
WRWS will communicate an extension or elevation of this water conservation effort to all users if it becomes applicable.
“We ask that all WRWS customers do their part to conserve water usage and alleviate the strain on our resources,” Director Tierney said.
