Water Use Restrictions
The Water Division of the Department of Public Works would like to thank all residents and business owners in the Town of Needham for complying with the 2016 mandatory odd/even non-essential outdoor water use restriction. Whether it was a restriction for conservation purposes or in reaction to drought conditions, the efforts undertaken resulted in a reduction in the residential gallons per person, per day (rg/pd). While the Town was unable to get below the mandated 65 rg/pd, we were able to reduce the water consumption from the prior calendar year. We appreciate your assistance over the upcoming watering season in complying with the restriction and other efforts in reducing water consumption. The Water Division will be working with the community to increase awareness of the water restriction and other water conservation efforts.
