In late August, the state’s Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs issued a declaration of a Level 2 Significant Drought in all seven regions of the commonwealth.

Under Stage 2, restricted activities include outside water use in general, watering lawns and gardens, washing vehicles, and filling swimming pools. These activities are only permitted before 7 a.m. and after 7 p.m. and are limited to alternate days. Addresses ending in even numbers may water on even days of the month. Addresses ending in odd numbers may water on odd days of the month.

These restrictions will be enforced by the Dalton Fire District Water Dept. and will include fines for violations. These include a verbal warning for the first violation; a written notice for the second violation; a $50 fine for the third violation; and $300 for subsequent violations.

If you have any questions or comments please contact the Dalton Fire District Water Dept. at (413)684-6124 or email
