Southwick water restriction

SOUTHWICK – Southwick is under a water restriction order until further notice.
Department of Public Works Director Randy Brown said Friday the restrictions are for irrigation systems.
“Using a handheld hose to water your garden is okay,” said Brown.
The restriction was triggered because of water levels from the town supply in Westfield.
Brown said properties on the north side of town — north of Granville and South Longyard roads – can use irrigation systems on Monday for odd numbered properties and on Tuesdays for even numbered properties.
Properties south of that area can water on Wednesdays for odd numbered properties and Thursdays for even numbered properties.
“This is for people on town water,” Brown said. “It does not affect anyone with a well, although we encourage everyone to conserve water.”
Brown said there was a similar restriction in place last year.
“Westfield, West Springfield, Northampton and other communities have water restrictions as well,” he said.
More I formation is available on the town website, southwickma.org.
