On August 8, 2022, Cape Cod was declared to be at drought level 2 Significant Drought and as a result, the Board of Water and Sewer Commissioners at their regularly scheduled meeting on August 17, 2022 voted unanimously to limit all outdoor watering to hand-held only or drip irrigation. Water after 5 p.m. or before 9 a.m. to avoid evaporative losses. These restrictions begin immediately and will continue through at least September 21, 2022. Lawns naturally go dormant during dry conditions. They will revive when conditions improve.

Penalties for violation of this outdoor irrigation/sprinkling ban will include:
  1. First offense: Warning
  2. Second offense: $50.00
  3. Third offense: $100.00
  4. Fourth and subsequent offenses: $250.00
