Mandatory Outdoor Water Use Ban In Effect

Public Works Director Aaron Miklosko announces that the Town of Maynard will have a mandatory outdoor water use restriction beginning Monday June 11th, 2018, and will remain in effect until further notice.

The water restriction is the result of an effort to preserve the town’s water supply following a recent mechanical failure in one of its water production wells.

Under this Water Conservation Restriction, all nonessential outdoor use of water is prohibited at all times. The conservation order will be strictly enforced by local officials.

The elevated conservation restriction will help ensure the town can provide an adequate supply of water for drinking and fire protection.
