 – IMPORTANT NOTICE –
WATERING BAN

 ALL OUTDOOR WATERING IS PROHIBITED – IRRIGATION SYSTEMS & LAWN WATERING ARE PROHIBITED & MUST BE DISCONTINUED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FOR THE FOLLOWING AREAS:

~ Atkinson – *Including Dearborn Ridge (see below)
~ Hampstead & East Hampstead
~ Plaistow

Effective: Until Further Notice
Reason: Severe Drought Conditions

End of Ban: Currently Undetermined

Due to the severe drought conditions and lack of substantial rainfall in the near weather forecast, Hampstead Area Water Company, Inc (HAWC) is forced to place a temporary watering ban on all outdoor watering.

Irrigation systems and lawn watering must be discontinued. Hand-held hoses and watering cans will be permitted for use in your vegetable and flower gardens.

Previously in effect was the yearly odd/even schedule with restriction of times during those days. Due to the severe drought conditions as well as non-compliance of the odd/even watering policy, the water supply continues to diminish making the new watering ban necessary.

Please be advised that the watering ban will be strictly enforced. The first offense will result in a written notice for failure to comply. Subsequent offenses will result in disconnection of water service as well as fees. For further questions or violations please contact our office at 362-4299.

Any and all water conservation in addition to the ban is appreciated. We would like to thank you in advance for your assistance in following this temporary watering ban.

For more information about water conservation check out the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Partnership Program “WaterSense“. HAWC is a proud partner of the WaterSense program.

*DEARBORN RIDGE is currently under a complete water ban – NO OUTDOOR WATERING PERMITTED (this includes lawns, vegetable and flower gardens) until further notice.

As you are likely aware, according to the US Drought Monitor, southern NH is currently classified in extreme drought status. Unless there is a significant amount of rainfall prior to winter, the drought conditions have the potential to continue into the springtime.

HAWC continuously monitors the production and usages of each water system. Although the current data has not indicated a full watering ban is necessary at this time, in light of the current drought conditions, we are implementing a voluntary watering ban for all of our water systems. We ask that all HAWC customers discontinue outdoor irrigation as well as lawn watering, and we encourage customers to consider the drought conditions in relation to their water requirements to aid in conservation. This request is in conjunction with New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services’ urge for the public to discontinue non-essential outdoor water usage and to take efficiency measures indoors and we appreciate your assistance with water conservation.
