In response to continued low precipitation and high temperatures, Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Bethany A. Card declared on August 9th that the Connecticut River Valley has reached Level 3-Critical Drought stage, similar to the majority of the state. The Town is closely monitoring the water supply, and the recent data shows the Town's water supply is capable of meeting current water demand. Therefore, the Town is not issuing water use restrictions at this time. However, the Town always encourages residents to be mindful regarding water use and follow the water conservation tips provided on our Water Supply Status webpage found here. Please visit our Water Supply Status webpage for further information on our water system and recent data. The state declaration can be found here.
