Selectmen approve water restriction resolution

By K.B. Sherman, Community Reporter

Shrewsbury-icon-for-CA-web-pageShrewsbury – The Shrewsbury Board of Selectmen approved a water restriction resolution during its April 23 meeting.? Noting that “the selectmen have determined that a shortage of water exists” for which conservation measures are required, and that under Article 18 of the town bylaws they have the power to take immediate corrective action, they board resolved that an outdoor water restriction be set in place.

The following conditions apply:

  1. Even-numbered addresses may use water outdoors on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; and odd-numbered houses may use water outdoors on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
  2. No non-essential outdoor water use is allowed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days allowed.
  3. No outdoor use of water on Monday is allowed on any day at any address.
  4. This restriction begins May 1.

No further restrictions are anticipated at this time as long as water use remains less than 65 gallons per day per person.
