THE WATER CONSERVATION LEVEL

EFFECTIVE: JUNE 1ST 2017

Milford Water Company will be on a MODIFIED STAGE III Mandatory Water CONSERVATION Level.

What does this mean to you as a customer?

OUTSIDE WATER USAGE IS LIMITED TO HAND HELD HOSE BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7PM AND 7AM FOR NO MORE THAN 1HR ON AN ODD/EVEN BASIS. Washing of vehicles, power washing of homes and filling of pools is now permitted under the hand held hose restriction policy. AUTOMATIC IRRIGATION SYSTEMS MAY BE USED ONE DAY A WEEK, ODD NUMBERED HOMES MAY WATER WITH IRRIGATION ON TUESDAY AND EVEN NUMBERED HOMES MAY WATER ON THURSDAY BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7PM AND 7AM. This does however mean that you may not use any sprinklers or unattended hoses at any time. It restricts usage to only a hand held hose after 7pm and before 7am for no more than 1hr on an ODD/EVEN basis (odd numbered houses may use water on odd numbered calendar days and even numbered houses may use water on even numbered calendar days) and automatic irrigation systems as outlined above only.

MWC DOES MONITOR FOR VIOLATORS OF THE CONSERVATION STAGES AND WILL ISSUE A WRITTEN WARNING FOR THE FIRST VIOLATION.

SUBSEQUENT VIOLATION WILL RESULT IN THE TERMINATION OF WATER SERVICE. ONCE THE SERVICE HAS BEEN TERMINATED THE COST OF THE RESTORATION WILL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE OWNER.
