The map and list linked below show towns and cities in Massachusetts with Public Water Supply (PWS) systems that have notified MassDEP that they have implemented outdoor water use restrictions in 2013. The restrictions may be Voluntary, Mandatory, Emergency or Total Ban on nonessential water use, and may include limitations on outside water use such as odd/even days, hours of the day, hand-held hose, no automatic sprinklers, or total bans on outside watering. Contact your local PWS for updated outdoor water use restriction information.
If you have any questions regarding this map, or if you represent a PWS and would like to add your community to the map, please contact Jen D'Urso at MassDEP, Jen.DUrso@state.ma.us or 617-654-6591. PWSs that implement mandatory restrictions are required to notify MassDEP by submitting the Notification of Water Use Restriction form to the Water Management Act Program in MassDEP's Boston office.
