Water Restrictions for Lawn Irrigation Notice
TOWN OF SCITUATE MASSACHUSETTS
8 May 2012
Dear Water Customer,
During summer months the Town experiences extremely high demand for water use placing a strain on our wells and water treatment plant. In the past we occasionally found ourselves with reduced capability to supply water in event of an emergency or equipment failure.
Lawn irrigation systems place a great strain on our water system. To reduce the demand they create, the Town implemented limitations on the use of our public water supply for lawn irrigation purposes.
For the period of Memorial Day through Labor Day, the use of lawn irrigation systems connected to the municipal water supply is restricted to one day per week based upon the voting precinct in which the property is located.*
1. Properties in Precinct 1 may irrigate lawns on Monday
Violation of this irrigation system restriction may result in fines of up to $100 per day (Scituate Code of General Bylaws, Section 30660).
Property owners with private wells supplying their irrigation systems may go to the Water Department office next to the 3A roundabout to register the well and pick-up a sign to install at the entrance to the property.
If you have an irrigation system connected to the Town’s water supply, please adjust the timer program to water your lawn only on the assigned day from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
