MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Water Works Board of Water Commissioners at the April 20 Board Meeting voted to officially suspend the voluntary water restriction previously requested of MWW franchise customers back in October, 2016.
The request for voluntary restriction was made due to the extreme drought conditions last summer and into the fall months. With the precipitation experienced over the winter months, MWW is pleased to report that Lake Massabesic and Tower Hill Pond, our water supply, are at full capacity. This precludes the need for continuing the voluntary restriction at this time.
MWW will continue to work with the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services in monitoring any potential severe drought situation as we head into the high consumption summer months.
Residents are reminded regardless of a restriction on water use, please use this most valued resource wisely.
