With much of the state experiencing mild-to-significant drought conditions, it was only a matter of time until Natick would announce its annual non-essential outdoor watering restrictions. That time is today, July 21.
Last year the restrictions went into place in May, fueled by PFAS contamination issues. Natick waited until August in 2020 to make the call.
This time around, Natick points to drought conditions as well as “excessively high water demand due to non-essential outside water use for lawn and garden watering.” The restrictions allow for water to be available to meet public health and safety needs.
Good thing we’ve got the rain barrel cranking. Except there’s been little rain to fill it. But there has been lots of water from our dehumidifiers.
