Voluntary Water Conservation

Monday, 31 August 2020

On August i3th, the Cape and Islands were classified as a Level 2 - Significant Drought. This determination was based on soil moisture content, the lack of rainfall and the dry conditions observed throughout the area. Our historical data would suggest that the aquifer is presently operating at the same characteristics as in the past. While this is good news, we believe in proactive decisions, resource management and conservation. It is for this reason that we remind you of our Voluntary Water Conservation Measures. The recommended and Voluntary Water Conservation Measures consist of:

  • Watering of lawns is limited to odd / even days (based on house address) between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.
  • Washing of sidewalks, patios and driveways is prohibited (excluding businesses for health / safety reasons).
  • Pistol-grip nozzles are to be used on all hoses used for washing cars and on hoses at dockside facilities.
  • Restaurants may serve water at the request of the patron.

The Edgartown Water Department monitors the condition of the aquifer on a daily basis. This information is then examined for trends that indicate the water availability and potential well production. This information is also compared to historical data. At present, all operations within the Water Department are normal, with the aquifer in the same condition as years past. Should we recognize a trending pattern that would suggest a diminishing water supply, we will inform the public and advise accordingly.

Any questions may be directed to William R. Chapman - Water Superintendent at 508-627-4717
