Effective May 1, 2020 through November 1, 2020 Phase II Water Restrictions will be in place. Even numbered properties will be restricted to Mondays and Thursdays between 5:00am to 8:00am and 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Odd numbered properties will be restricted to Tuesday and Friday between 5:00am to 8:00am and 6:00pm to 9:00pm. These restrictions are necessary to comply with our permit from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection and to stay below our limit of 65 residential gallons per capita per day. As part of this permit we must also monitor streamflow in the Taunton River and impose further restrictions if the flow falls below 47 cubic feet per second for three consecutive days. Residents will be notified if further restrictions are required.
