Please reduce outdoor water use ASAP to help avoid issuance of 1-day per week watering restrictions.
While sunny days and warmer temperatures are good for enjoying the great outdoors, they are not nearly as good for the Town’s water supplies. These sunny, warm days and the lack of rainfall over the last several weeks as we head into the summer season translates to conditions that are starting to look pretty dry. Without any relief in the form of significant rain events predicted in the forecast, Concord Water asks that you use water responsibly, especially outdoors. Your individual effort is imperative in ensuring that our water demand does not exceed our available supply. Failure to do so will result in mandatory 1-day per week water use restrictions.
Here are some helpful tips for using outdoor water more responsibly:
- Only water your lawn 1-day or 1-inch per week
- Water before the sun comes up so your lawn has time to soak it up
- Don’t water your driveway or sidewalk - they don’t grow!
Concord Public Works is monitoring customer demand and available water supply around the clock and will provide additional information as it becomes available. Thank you for doing your part to reduce unnecessary outdoor water use.
