Dedham-Westwood Water District to Downgrade Current Water Restrictions to Stage I-C

Dedham, MA – Effective Monday, September 26, the Dedham-Westwood Water District (DWWD) will downgrade the current water restrictions (Stage II-A) to Stage I-C.

Stage I-C allows outdoor watering two days per week between the hours of 6-9 a.m., and 6-9 p.m., in Dedham on Mondays and Thursdays and in Westwood on Tuesdays and Fridays. Lawn watering is prohibited on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Handheld hoses may be used for flower and vegetable gardens without hour or day restrictions.

The restrictions are being downgraded due to the system’s ability to keep up with current water demands, recent rain surpluses, and cooler temperatures.

In addition, customers have diligently complied with the current restriction stage, which has reduced the overall amount we have had to withdraw from our sources. This cooperation has enabled the District to reduce its overall water demand and downgrade the current restriction level.

As the Southeast Region of the Commonwealth is still experiencing a significant drought, Stage I-C water restrictions are MANDATORY, ALLOWING OUTDOOR WATERING ONLY TWO DAYS PER WEEK.

The District would like to thank all of our customers for their continued cooperation!
