When it rains, it pours, and when it doesn’t, well, you have this summer. The lack of rain prompted the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency last week to issue a drought advisory for much of central Massachusetts, including Southborough.
Southborough gets its water from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA), and their supplies are still within normal levels despite the drought advisory. While we’re not under any formal restrictions from the state, Southborough does have a voluntary odd/even water ban in place. Residents in even-numbered houses are asked to water their yards only on even-numbered days, and those in odd-numbered houses on odd-numbered days.
With the lack of rain this summer, are you participating in the odd/even water ban? Take the poll below (if you’re reading this via the daily email, you’ll have to visit the site to participate). If you’re taking other steps to limit your water consumption, let us know in the comments.
