Ban on Lawn Irrigation in effect

Due to the ongoing dry weather, and two of our sources currently being unavailable due to delays in maintenance activities caused by COVID-19 interruptions, we are implementing a ban on lawn irrigation effective immediately.  This includes above ground sprinklers and automated inground irrigation systems.  There are NO EXCEPTIONS for the establishment of new lawns.

The remaining components of our seasonal outdoor water use restrictions remain in effect, including the limits on using water outdoors based on your address. Permissible uses include other outdoor water uses, such as power washing, watering gardens, car washing, and construction related activities.

Any violations will be subject to a fine of up to $200 per incident. We thank you for your cooperation and any water conservation efforts that you observe.  Updates in the status of our outdoor water use restrictions will be communicated on our website and via Twitter @ActonWater.
