Milford Water Company’s Water Conservation Policy Relative to Irrigation Systems.
As part of its Mass Department of Public Utilities Approved Rules and Regulations M.D.P.U. No.19 – sheet 13 and in response to the Mass Department of Environmental Protection’s request to develop a more aggressive “Water Conservation Policy” to help meet future demands created a Water Conservation Policy. As part of that approved policy the following reference to lawn irrigation systems is in effect and has been since January 1, 2005.
Sheet 13, Section 17 – WATER CONSERVATION POLICY
(5) Banned all new lawn irrigation systems connected to the Company supply after January 1, 2005. If a customer installed a lawn irrigation system after January 1, 2005 and connected it to the Company’s supply, the Company requires the Customer to disconnect the banned irrigation system and the Company also reserves its right to terminate service to this customer until the irrigation system is disconnected.
THE WATER CONSERVATION LEVEL
Effective August 5, 2019
Milford Water Company is currently on a STAGE II Water CONSERVATION Level.
What does this mean to you as a customer?
ALL OUTSIDE WATER USAGE INCLUDING IRRIGATION WATER IS LIMITED TO AN ODD – EVEN ALLOCATION PROGRAM BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7PM AND 7AM. This means that all outside water use is based on your house number, odd numbers may use water on odd calendar days and even numbers may use water on even number days after 7pm and before 7am.
MWC DOES MONITOR FOR VIOLATORS OF THE CONSERVATION STAGES.
The Milford Water Company at this time would like to thank all of its customers for their cooperation in this matter and hope that by CONSERVING now we will not need to increase our water restriction going forward.
