THE MASSACHUSETTS EMERGENCY Management Agency (MEMA) has issued a bulletin regarding drought conditions throughout the Commonwealth. Included in the bulletin are internet links to several references where more detailed information can be found as well as explanations of various status levels and required water conservation actions for each.
Hawley’s current status is indicated at the “Warning” level, like most of the rest of the Commonwealth to the East of the Town. Towns just to the West of Harley are indicated at the “Watch” level.
The “Warning” level carries with it a very strong request to “eliminate outside water use.” For more information on the drought situation and what to do about it, click HERE.
