The Hyannis Water Board, at their June 21, 2016 regularly scheduled Public Meeting, has determined that a potential for a water shortage exists due to the limited availability of water production wells due to elevated levels of unregulated contaminants and manganese.
The declaration of a State of Water Supply Conservation by the Hyannis Water Board is appropriate to ensure an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection is available, and to ensure compliance with the Water Management Act.
The following restrictions limiting nonessential outdoor water use by water users are necessary to control the volume of water pumped each day:
1. Odd / Even Day Outdoor Watering (including automatic lawn sprinklers):
Outdoor watering by water users with odd numbered addresses is restricted to odd numbered days. Outdoor watering by water users with even numbered addresses is restricted to even numbered days. Commercial, condominium and other multiple properties held under common ownership or management may, by written request of the property owner, be assigned an odd or even designation by the Water Supply Division.
2. Outdoor Watering Hours (including automatic lawn sprinklers):
Outdoor watering is permitted only from 5:00 PM to 5:00 AM.
3. Filling swimming pools:
Filling of swimming pools is prohibited.
Please be aware of advance weather forecasts, and adjust your watering schedule accordingly.
Install rain shutoff devices on automatic irrigation systems.
Water conservation kits are available at no charge.
The Hyannis Water Board will terminate the water use restrictions on nonessential outdoor water use when the condition requiring the State of Water Supply Conservation no longer exist.
