MIDDLETON MOVES TO LEVEL 4 WATER RESTRICTIONS
The Town of Middleton announces a change in outdoor water restrictions for municipal water users to Level 4 due to low flow in the Ipswich River. Level 4 drought conditions allow outdoor lawn & garden watering with sprinklers and/or irrigation systems on Tuesday and Saturday ONLY, from 7:00PM to 10:00PM. Hand watering (hand held hoses with nozzles and watering cans) is allowed anytime. Car washing is also allowed.
The Town is requesting residents to watch for changes in the water restriction levels as the summer progresses. The Town announces changes on signs posted throughout the Town, local cable access television and the town website (www.middletonma.gov).
DPW Water Division staff actively enforces all water restrictions in Middleton. Per Town Code, Chapter 230, Section 4, the Town issues warnings for initial violations which escalate to a $50 fine for second violations and a $100 fine for all subsequent violations in a calendar year.
