Maurice Goulet, Director of Public Works, clarified the water ban issues:
In this particular case, DEP had notified us that they were implementing an Advisory Drought status. According to our Water Management Act Permit, the Town is required to implement water restrictions. In the Advisory status the Town has an Odd/Even water restriction with no watering between the hours of 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Odd/Even restriction simply means, odd numbered houses can water on odd numbered calendar days and the same for even numbered houses on even calendar days. As far as the one day a week sign that was posted, it was done in error. It will be just an alternating odd/even restriction for the time being. If the Drought Status becomes more severe, we will have to become more stringent in our restrictions.
Thanks, hope this clears things up a little
