PEPPERELL – Effective May 1 through Oct. 31, outdoor watering of any kind is restricted to even numbered days of the month for homes with even numbered addresses and odd-numbered days for homes with an odd- numbered address.

This voluntary outside water-conservation program should be effective enough so as to make a mandatory water ban unnecessary except under extreme circumstances.

All water customers are strongly encouraged to comply with the program to help avoid more extreme measures of water conservation. Should conditions require, this conservation measure will become a mandatory ban as declared by the Board of Public Works. Violations will be subject to a fine at that time.
