The Dover Board of Health communicates its recommendations for additional water conservation actions using the various social media platforms focused on Dover (e.g., Town of Dover website, the Town of Dover Facebook page, NextDoor), electronic message boards, and signage around town. Colonial Water Company customers should expect to receive communication directly from the company on general conservation activities and specific emergency declarations.
Water use restrictions are especially recommended during seasonal peak demand periods (May-September) due to the impact of irrigation systems on water usage. When MassDEP declares a drought warning or drought emergency, dedicated informational signs are placed throughout the town.
