The Bristol area is now under a strict water restriction!
The Cities reservoir has fallen well below 50 percent and this has many city officials concerned. They’ve been watching the reservoir all summer long and now that we are this low, the mandatory effect is in place.
The Bristol Press went on to quote Robert Longo saying, “If water is terminated, it may remain off for a minimum of 24 hours,” said Robert Longo, superintendent for the water department. “These restrictions apply to all customers and unfortunately, any customer who has recently planted new grass must also stop all outside use. Due to the severity of the levels and no major precipitation in the forecast, we must conserve all the water we can.”
He went on to say, “The water department may discontinue service to residents if it determines a customer is jeopardizing the “safety and integrity of the water supply,” Longo said, adding that anyone found to be violating the restrictions may be subject to having their water terminated and would be required to pay a water reinstatement fee. – The Bristol Press
Unfortunately there is no heavy rain foretasted in the near future. However, as we approach the colder months, we can expect most plants to start to wield away. and most landscaping has come to an end to the season.
