WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) — The West Springfield Mayor’s Office is informing residents about a mandatory water ban.
West Springfield is switching water sources from Southwick Wells to the Springfield water system. The change is due to mechanical problems impacting the quantity of water at the wells in Southwick. The transition will go into effect Saturday evening, and the ban goes into effect Saturday at 8 p.m.
