The Centerville-Osterville-Marstons Mills Water Department has implemented a voluntary water conservation program.  Implementing these important conservation measures could help to avoid a mandatory water ban.

  • Please avoid all outside water use between the hours of 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM.
  • Residents living in homes on the odd numbered sides of streets are asked to water lawns and gardens on odd numbered days only.
  • Residents residing on even numbered sides of streets are requested to water lawns and gardens on even numbered days.
  • Water only when necessary.
  • Please be aware of the advance weather forecast.  If wind and rain is forecast make adjustments to your watering schedule to minimize water consumption.
  • Maintain your lawn at a height of at least two (2) inches.  This practice will protect roots and retain soil moisture.
  • Install rain shutoff devices on automatic irrigation systems. Automatic irrigation system owners are asked to check moisture sensor controls for proper operation.
  • Water Conservation kits available at no charge upon request. Use water wisely!
