Stage 1 Voluntary Water Restrictions Begin on May 15th for Dedham-Westwood Water District Customers


Dedham, MA - Beginning on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, the Dedham-Westwood Water District will implement voluntary water restrictions, Stage I, when customers are asked to voluntarily refrain from non-essential outdoor watering on five days of the week.

Non-essential outdoor water use includes watering lawns or other vegetation, washing vehicles, unnecessary washing down driveways and sidewalks, and other uses of water hoses. Customers should strive to conserve water from affected public water supplies in all other practicable ways.

The water company requests that Westwood customers isolate non-essential outdoor water use to Tuesdays and Fridays. Westwood customers should refrain from such water use on all other days.

Dedham customers are asked to isolate non-essential outdoor water use to watering only on Mondays and Thursdays. Dedham customers should refrain from such watering on all other days.

The voluntary water restrictions are being implemented in accordance with the water utility's water conservation plan. If necessary, the conservation plan provides for mandatory conservation that is enforced by fines in later stages of conservation (Stages II, III, and IV).
