Twice per Week Water Restriction Reinstated with Revision
At their regularly-schedule public meeting on August 9th, 2017, the Lincoln Water Department Commissioners voted to lift the 1-day per week outdoor water use schedule and reinstate the 2-day per week water restriction normal for this time of year. The water level of Flints Pond has recovered over 2.5 feet since the near record low water levels experienced this past fall and winter and has remained relatively stable the last three months as a result of above-average precipitation and lower water demand. The Commissioners have developed a Drought Management Plan for the water system and will continue to monitor the pond level and the Town’s water demand on a monthly basis to assess the appropriate drought response level.
The 2-day per week watering schedule has been modified to spread out the irrigation schedule over the entire week. The new schedule is based on the last number of the house address and is as follows;
Even number = Tuesday and/or Saturday
Odd number = Wednesday and/or Sunday
