drought map7-21-22

In response to almost three months of dry weather conditions, Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) Secretary Bethany A. Card announced on July 21st that the Connecticut River Valley is in a Level 2-Significant Drought. In response to this declaration, the Town has assessed our water supply, and due to recently bringing one groundwater well back on line and improvements to another well, we currently have a stable water supply. Therefore, the Town is not issuing water use restrictions at this time. However, the Town always encourages residents to be mindful regarding water use and follow the water conservation tips provided on our Water Supply Status webpage found here.

Additional information on Amherst’s water supply status can be found here.
