The Department of Environmental Protection has issued a Level 3 “Critical Drought Warning” for Middlesex County which includes Groton MA.

Due to the lack of precipitation this past Winter and Spring and heavy pumping demands being placed on the water supply system, the Groton Water Department is sending out the updated Water Restrictions which take effect immediately.

All outside lawn irrigation is prohibited until further notice.

Please turn your irrigation systems off.

Watering of trees and shrubs with hand held hoses is acceptable.

If you have any questions with the Water Conservation Program, please call the Groton Water Department at 978-448-1122

Thank you
