Water-Sewer Department Manager Eric Carty announced Monday morning that the water pump motor that ceased functioning over the weekend has been repaired and the well is back on line. As such, the town will revert to its normal state of required water use restrictions.
“With very little rain in the forecast and over a 6-inch year-to-date rain deficit, we continue to see groundwater levels drop rapidly,” Carty noted. “We will soon need to cut back pumping capacity. It is imperative that everyone follow the restrictions or we will end up at that point much sooner. As a reminder, there is no lawn watering on Saturdays, Sundays or Mondays.
