With local water reservoirs now back to an adequate level, water usage restrictions put in place by the Town last week have been relaxed.

The Town’s regular water conservation policy is now back in effect, with an odd/even system that sees building numbers correspond with days on which outside water may be used (odd-numbered buildings on odd-numbered days, even-numbered buildings on even-numbered days).

Outside water use between noon and 7 p.m. is prohibited on any day of the week.

The policy includes exceptions for hand watering, which may be carried out on gardens and flowers on any day of the week, and new sod, which may be watered daily for a maximum of six weeks, but not within the prohibited hours.

To assist in conservation efforts, the Town recommends making use of rain barrels to help collect rain water that can be reused, taking shorter showers and washing laundry and dishes only when loads are at full capacity.

The Town on Monday said its staff along with members of Municipal Enforcement would keep a close eye on the community in the near future to ensure the policy’s regulations were being met.
