Drought Advisory Affects the Town of Wrentham - Updated 09/12/16
Following sixth straight months of below average rainfall and warm weather, the state has declared a Drought Warning for all of eastern Massachusetts. The Town of Wrentham’s aquifer water supplies have experienced a significant drop and are extremely low due to excessively high demand for water. These conditions raise serious public health and safety concerns including increased risk for wildfires and possible future contamination of our drinking water supply as levels continue to decrease. To combat this hazard the Town has declared a Stage V Water Ban. Effective immediately, all outdoor water use is banned. There are no exceptions. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency is asking the public, including households and businesses that draw water from private wells, to conserve water by reducing both outdoor and indoor use.
Please contact the Department of Public Works at 508-384-5477 for more detailed information.
