Community Water Supply Update - August 17, 2016

On August 12, 2016, the state issued a Drought Warning for Central and Northeast Massachusetts, a Drought Watch for Southeastern Massachusetts and the Connecticut River Valley, and a Drought Advisory for Western Massachusetts. Many customers are unsure what that means for our service area.

While the Quabbin Reservoir remains within normal operating range for this time of year, it is always important to practice water conservation wherever possible, particularly during long dry spells such as this. Here are some links to water saving tips:
