From the Hopedale Water Department:

Due to current drought conditions and water tank levels, the Hopedale Water Department will be enforcing Stage 3 water restrictions that will limit outdoor water usage of all kinds to 2 days a week based on your house number. Odd numbered houses will be allowed outdoor water usage on Tuesdays and Thursdays, even numbered houses will be allowed outdoor water usage on Wednesdays and Fridays. No outdoor water usage will be allowed Saturdays, Sundays, or Mondays, or any day between the hours of 9am to 5pm. Residents may water vegetable gardens by the use of a handheld device. These restrictions are not only due to the current drought, but also because one of the department’s wells was deactivated due to elevated levels of PFAS.

Compliance is necessary to avoid stage 4 restrictions which can be found on the Town’s website homepage. These restrictions will be enforced
