GEORGETOWN — Utility director Marlene Ladderbush announces that the Georgetown Water Department has implemented a mandatory outdoor watering restriction.
The mandatory restriction is in effect daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., and residents are asked to refrain from all non-essential water use during those hours in order to help conserve resources.
With the mandatory restriction, residents with odd-numbered addresses may partake in non-essential watering on Mondays and Thursdays outside the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., while residents with even-numbered addresses can use water outdoors on Tuesdays and Fridays outside the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
At this time, there is no non-essential watering allowed on the weekend at any time of day.
The Georgetown Water Department will continue to monitor streamflow conditions and determine if and when a mandatory restriction is needed, but residents are required to adhere to the current mandatory restriction.
For more information on the water restriction, Director Ladderbush encourages residents to check the Georgetown Water Department website for updates or call the office at (978) 352-5750.
