LYNNFIELD — The Lynnfield Center Water District (LCWD) has a year-round watering restriction. By order of the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), sprinkler use is permitted from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on even numbered calendar days only. A hand held hose may be used at any time.

Violations of the restrictions are subject to a fine or fines. Excess watering outside of this time period causes low pressure affecting fire protection in the higher elevations.

During extreme dry spells further restrictions may be imposed by the Mass. DEP and will be posted on the District’s website at: www.LCWD.US.

Customers are cautioned that excessive outside water use will result in a very large water bill due to the LCWD tiered water rates that are intended to promote conservation.

Customers may contact the LCWD office at 781-334-3901 or refer to the district’s website at www.LCWD.US for more information.
