WESTBOROUGH – The town’s annual water conservation measures are now in effect.

As of May 1, the town’s water restrictions went into place under Westborough’s Water Management Act permit. The restrictions usually occur during the summer months.

Currently, the level one restrictions are in place, which means outdoor watering is permitted before 9 a.m. and after 5 p.m. 

Essential uses are allowed for health or safety; by regulation; for food production, including vegetable gardens; for maintenance of livestock; and to meet the core functions of a business.

Fines will be imposed for violations.

At Annual Town Meeting, water use regulation bylaws were extended to private well users. The bylaws are currently under review with the state’s adjutant general. Until the bylaw goes into effect, private well users are encouraged to comply with water use regulations.
