The City of Gloucester’s water conservation measures will remain in place until further notice.   Therefore, in accordance with Section 23-60 of the Gloucester Code of Ordinances, the Director of Public Works is instituting the following water conservation measures to help ensure an adequate supply of water to all customers:

1. Outdoor watering and lawn irrigation is permissible from 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. daily.

2. Outdoor watering is limited to “handheld” with a hose or a watering can after 5 p.m. or before 9 a.m.

3. Filling/replenishing of swimming pools from the City water supply is prohibited.

4. Washing of vehicles, boats, driveways and sidewalks is prohibited.

With these measures the City hopes to extend our reservoir drinking water sources further in case dry conditions persist and to cease these water restrictions in a month’s time as our demand drops off seasonally.  Your cooperation with these restrictions is appreciated, mandatory, and enforceable as necessary.

We appreciate your cooperation and support of the City’s water conservation efforts.
