Easthampton ends water use restriction

EASTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) - The Easthampton Department of Public Works has ended the water use restriction for users of the public water supply. 

According to a news release, they ask that users continue to be mindful of non-essential water consumption and may need to implement another restriction later this summer.

According to a news release, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) requires restrictions to be implemented during the months of May through September when certain criteria are met. 

MassDEP requires that a water use restriction be implemented when stream-flow in the Connecticut River drops below a certain quantity of flow for a 3-day period.
