Did you Know?

More than half of Massachusetts is now experiencing an extreme drought (U.S. Drought Monitor 9/15/16) The area considered to be at risk of major crop losses and widespread water restrictions or shortages has doubled since August.

Boston.com meteorologist Dave Epstein said this year’s drought is the worst since 1965, with some areas falling 10 to 14 inches below their average rainfall over the past year. All Nobles families are affected by the current drought, and the PA encourages each one of us to do our part to conserve water.

What can we do to respond to this drought?

  • Have a family conversation about the drought and about what your family can do to conserve water
  • Be creative around the house with your water use, including “reuse” of household water such as what’s left in a water bottle, water left from boiling eggs or steaming vegetables or from the salad spinner, and water that runs while you wait for it to warm up
  • Limit the length of showers
  • Abide by town-enforced watering restrictions, either by not watering or by hand watering only
  • Run only full washing machine and dishwasher loads
  • Be sure the water is off during teeth brushing
