Why does the Town have watering restrictions?

Water used for outdoor irrigation accounts for the largest demand on our water system. Watering schedules have been in effect since 1985 to help level out peak demand and make customers more attentive to water usage. Increasing water efficiency can save the Town, and its rate payers, millions of dollars in new infrastructure, help stabilize future rates, protect the investments of property owners, and most importantly, extend the life of our aquifers. Watering schedules are in effect May 1 – Sept. 30.
