Outdoor Watering Guidelines

Outdoor watering

Reminder to all Dracut Water Supply customers that our water conservation is in effect from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Current conditions have been drier than normal.  Help us avoid level 2 and/or level 3 by following the below outdoor watering guideline.  Thank you.

Automatic watering sprinkler systems may operate during any hours on the days that allow for outside water use.

Level One - Current Level
Odd/Even by house address
Even numbered homes may water outside on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays
Odd numbered homes may water outside on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays
NO outside water use on Mondays

Level Two
Same watering schedule except outside water use is by hand and no automated sprinklers or irrigation devices are allowed
Only hand held hose use
Hoses should be equipped with devices to stop the flow of water when not being used

Level Three

Level Three is an emergency action due to severe drought

Violations of any level may cause fines and continued violations may result in the shut-off of water services in severe drought conditions. Our hope is for careful and considerate use of this precious resource so that Level Two or Three are not necessary.
