CRITICAL WATER LEVEL NOTIFICATION

MANDATORY REDUCTION AND PROHIBITION of UNNECESSARY WATER USE NOTICE

WATER CUSTOMERS OF THE VILLAGE OF LOWVILLE, THE TOWNS OF LOWVILLE, WATSON, NEW BREMEN AND MARTINSBURG ARE HEREBY ORDERED BY THE VILLAGE OF LOWVILLE TO REDUCE WATER USAGE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The Village of Lowville water system has experienced excessive consumption in the last several weeks. That coupled with the ongoing drought, extreme heat and lack of rain has caused an increase in consumption for outdoor activities including pool filling and lawn, yard and garden care.

A steady decline in the water level in our reservoir has triggered this notice.

Customers are hereby required to conserve water. Mandatory reduction methods include no water hauling, no automobile washing, no swimming pool filling, no lawn watering as well as limiting laundry washing and any unnecessary water use.

VIOLATORS OF THIS MANDATORY WATER REDUCTION WILL BE SUBJECT TO TICKETING WHICH IS PUNISHABLE BY FINE.

For more information, you may contact Mr. Thomas Compo or Mr. Rich Ross of the Village of Lowville or the New York State Health Department in Watertown.

Please share this information with all people who are water customers of the Village of Lowville, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example people in apartments, nursing homes, schools and businesses).
