Suspension of Deduct Meter Sales
Water Ban Effective May 1, 2021
On April 01, 2021, the Pepperell Board of Public Works voted to suspend the sale of deduct meters through the end of 2021. Additionally, they also voted to implement a town wide outdoor water ban restricting the non-essential use of water beginning May 1, 2021.
The water ban prohibits all outdoor watering by mechanical or automatic means. It includes all non-essential water use, including but not limited to, watering lawns, washing vehicles, power washing of homes, filling of pools, etc…, and may limit commercial establishments to limited hours. The use of sprinklers, irrigation systems or any other device that operates automatically is prohibited. This does not include the hand watering of small gardens by means of a handheld hose on an odd/even schedule. Violators of this ban may be fined and possibly risk losing water service if violations continue.
We strongly recommend that residents with private wells also follow these guidelines to avoid depleting their wells.
These measures are due to several reasons including:
If we experience a significant increase in precipitation this spring and/or summer, the full ban may be lifted, but the annual odd-even restriction would remain in effect until October as usual.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time. For more information, please visit our website: https://town.pepperell.ma.us/DocumentCenter/View/5445/OUTDOOR-WATERING-BAN-FAQ
