Below is an announcement first published in the latest Town Topics newsletter:
WILMINGTON, MA — With the hot summer days upon us, residents are reminded that the Town of Wilmington has active water use restrictions. There is no outdoor watering allowed between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. In the case of sprinkler systems, both above-ground and installed underground systems may only be used once per week, subject to the hours above. Other outside water use is restricted to hand held hoses only.
Per the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Town will be required to ban sprinklers entirely if this policy is not followed. Failure to follow the water use restriction may result in a minimum $50.00 per day fine. Thank you for your continued cooperation.
