W A T E R ADVISORY
A long period of very hot weather always puts water supplies under stress and we observe this in declining recharge rates in our wells.
Rather than wait for a Board of Health Mandatory Restriction, the Colony can institute its own water conservation measures by:
– Eliminating watering lawns during day light hours;
– Not washing cars and limiting hose use generally;
– Being creative about wasting water – ie; washing clothes at night, repair leaks, minimize flushing and so on……
More water conservation tips from the New York City DEP are here: http://nyc.gov/html/dep/pdf/ways_to_save_water/do_dont_english.pdf
Your cooperation will assure that out wells and pumps can continue to provide reliable service during what has been a very long hot, dry period.
This conservation advisory also applies to homes with private wells – same water source, same restrictions.
