City Drought Warning

On Aug. 12th, the state issued a Drought Warning for Northeast Massachusetts, which includes Newton. While there are no current restrictions in place, we urge residents to conserve their water usage during this time.

Newton receives its water from MWRA, which draws from the Quabbin Reservoir. While the Quabbin Reservoir remains within normal operating range for this time of year, it is always important to practice water conservation wherever possible, particularly during long dry spells such as this. Here are some links to water saving tips:
