Permanent water restrictions have been adopted by both Aquarion Water Company and the Town of Greenwich. Water restrictions are on all outdoor irrigation by automatic sprinkler irrigation systems limiting watering to 2-day per week.
Responsible watering starts here
Homes with automatic sprinkler irrigation systems often use large volumes of water—about 40% more than homes without the systems. All that water can be harmful to healthy lawns and gardens.
Having a beautiful lawn and garden doesn’t mean you need to use a lot of water.
That’s why Aquarion worked with state and local officials to develop a mandatory, twice-weekly irrigation schedule in towns where outdoor water usage is especially high. Customers in those towns are now saving millions of gallons of water each year. Please help your community maintain its water-efficiency by following the mandatory schedule for your in-ground and above-ground sprinkler irrigation.
You may use drip irrigation, soaker hoses, and hand-held watering at any time.
Following the drought of 2016, a Drought Preparedness and Response Plan (DPRP) was adopted by the Connecticut Water Planning Council and formulates the basis for action at the state, local, and water supply entities.
