Drinking Water Restriction Notice | September 12, 2016

Due to the continuing dry weather pattern experienced throughout the Greater Boston area, the reservoir system has been reduced to below 50% of its maximum capacity. Pursuant to the Lynn Water & Sewer Commission’s Water Conservation Policy and Drought Contingency Plan, a “Limited Restriction Condition” has been imposed on the use of water in our community.

The Lynn Water & Sewer Commission requests the cooperation of all Lynn residents, municipal departments, restaurants and businesses in conserving water as part of an effort to relieve demand on Lynn’s drinking water supply. The following list identifies actions requested by the Lynn Water & Sewer Commission in order to conserve water:

  1. Fire hydrants will only be used for fire fighting.
  2. Restrict restaurants to serve water only upon request.
  3. Request that Lynn residents refrain from any outside water usage.
  4. The Commission will place repair of leaks as a high priority item.
  5. The Commission will monitor conditions throughout the City of Lynn to assure that these limitations are being implemented and will issue warnings for violations.

The public will be advised when the Commission’s reservoir levels have increased. Until that time, your efforts toward conserving and preserving the City of Lynn’s drinking water resources will be deeply appreciated.

Drinking Water Restriction Notice | August 24, 2016

Due to the continuing dry weather pattern experienced throughout the Northeast, the reservoir system that serves as the City of Lynn’s drinking water supply has been reduced to below 56% of its maximum capacity.  Pursuant to the Lynn Water & Sewer Commission’s Water Conservation Policy and Drought Contingency Plan, a Voluntary Curtailment condition has been imposed on the use of water in our community.

The Lynn Water & Sewer Commission requests the cooperation of all Lynn residents and businesses in conserving water as part of a voluntary effort to relieve the demand on our drinking water supply.  The following list identifies several items that will conserve water:

1.  If you are still watering your lawn, please reduce the frequency of watering to once every several days.
2.  Use the garbage disposal sparingly.
3.  Install water efficient toilets, shower heads and faucets.
4.  Fix leaks in your plumbing.
5.  Keep a pitcher of cold water in the refrigerator instead of running water until it gets cold from the tap.
6.  Insulate water pipes in the basement.
7.  Don’t run the tub with the drain open while the water warms up (the cold water will mix with the hot).
8.  Use a broom instead of water to clean sidewalks and driveways.
9.  Run washing machine and dishwashers only when full.
10.  Shut off the water when you are brushing your teeth or shaving.

Your efforts toward conserving and preserving the City of Lynn’s drinking water resources will be appreciated.
