Shrewsbury adopts additional water restrictions

July 15th, 2016

Shrewsbury – In January 2006, the town launched the Shrewsbury Water Conservation Project to help promote water conservation. This program was launched in response to the Mass. Department of Environmental Protection’s water conservation requirements. Under the plan, drinking (tap) use should be kept to a minimum to ensure that there is enough flow for everyday use as well as fire protection in town. Water is to be saved by limiting use of in-ground lawn sprinklers, using rain water when possible, and using low-flow fixtures. This aims to avoid environmental degradation, preserve a precious natural resource, and save considerable capital and operating costs.

Sprts SH D Barlok 2 cr1

Worcester – When it came time to switch uniforms to transform into a Worcester Braveheart this spring, the transition was probably the simplest for Shrewsbury’s Danny Barlok than any other team member.

That’s because Barlok is a member of the baseball team for the College of the Holy Cross and since the Bravehearts play their home games at Worcester’s Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field, the same venue as the Crusaders, the 6’, 190 lb. right-handed pitcher was already where he needed to be.
