Massachusetts has declared a Level 2 drought emergency throughout the state. This drought is shaping up to be worse than the 2016-2017 drought which saw residential wells in Dover dry up.
PLEASE CONSERVE WATER. The Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection requires that all irrigation systems be turned off and only watering by hand-held hose or can between 5pm and 9 am is allowed. Please remember that all of Dover’s water ( private wells and Colonial Water) comes from only 2 aquifers. We all share water and should approach water conservation as a community responsibility.
