Local Drought Conditions

MAY 26, 2021: The Town has received several calls regarding an electronic sign in the area of Range/West Shore roads indicating that a total outside watering ban is in effect. Please be advised that this ban has been implemented by Pennichuck for their customers in that area, and any questions regarding those restrictions and/or the sign should be addressed directly to Pennichuck. If you are a Pennichuck customer residing in another area of Town, we encourage you to verify whether or not a similar ban is in place at your residence by visiting their website.


The remainder of Town remains at voluntary conservation measures as noted below. The drought status/restrictions will next be discussed at the June 7 meeting of the Board.


MAY 17, 2021: The Board of Selectmen has lifted the Level 1 watering restrictions effective immediately. They are requesting, however, that property owners take voluntary measures to conserve water whenever possible.


We encourage residents to bookmark the US/State Drought Monitor, which is updated each Thursday, for current drought conditions
