Salem Announces Water Use Restrictions

Due to the drought conditions, the Salem Selectmen have adopted the following water restrictions for all customers of the Town’s water system:

  • No outside use of water of any kind between the hours of 7:00 AM and midnight by any residences or businesses. The only exceptions to this restriction are commercial car washes, cash crops, farms, flower shops or garden centers.

  • Use of outside water is permitted between the hours of midnight and 7:00 AM for irrigation or watering of lawns/gardens only on ODD numbered days.

We encourage all Canobie Lake residents who draw water from the lake to adhere to the same restrictions as our neighbors in Salem.

The CLPA is pleased that Salem is taking these proactive steps now, rather than wait and potentially have a worse situation.
