Continued drought conditions halt non-essential water uses


Level 2-Significant Drought Halts Non-Essential Water Uses 

With water levels in wells declining due to irrigation and the region’s Level 2 Drought status, the Town of Dover and Aquarion Water Company are directing all residents and businesses in Dover to halt all non-essential outdoor water uses, including irrigation of lawns via sprinklers and automatic irrigation systems now through September 30.

These are mandatory restrictions. Hand-held watering will be allowed for now from 5pm to 9am.

Water uses subject to mandatory restrictions include nonessential outdoor watering activities such as:

  • irrigation of lawns via sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems;
  • washing of vehicles, except in a commercial car wash or as necessary for operator safety; and
  • washing of exterior building surfaces, parking lots, driveways or sidewalks, except as necessary to apply surface treatments such as paint, preservatives, stucco, pavement, or cement
