Water Use during a time of drought.

The City of Beverly is supplied with drinking water by the Salem Beverly Water Supply Board.  The Board has a clever system of pumps and reservoirs that only pumps excess water from the Ipswich River during the winter months and stores it in large reservoirs for use throughout the year.  At this time our reservoirs are at normal levels even though the region is experiencing a prolonged dry period.  We are able to maintain adequate supply only through careful management of our water system by constantly monitoring for leaks  and making quick repairs and by our customers doing their part by following best practices for water usage at all times.

While our reservoirs  remain within normal operating range for this time of year, it is always important to practice water conservation wherever possible, particularly during long dry spells such as this.  We encourage our customers to limit outdoor water usage so that we may maintain adequate supplies even if the dry period continues.  Without a doubt, limiting outdoor water usage is the easiest way to conserve water.  For help with indoor and outdoor conservation please for the link to the EPA Watersense Website.
