Voluntary Water Restrictions Effective Immediately

Effective immediately the Town of Williamsburg Water Department is implementing a voluntary water use restriction for users of the Williamsburg Public Water Supply. Limiting water use, especially non-essential outdoor water use, is needed to ensure a sustainable water supply and to protect stream flow for aquatic life.

A voluntary ban on non-essential outdoor water use is required between the hours of 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The suggested water uses banned include:

-Irrigation of lawns and watering of gardens, flowers, and ornamental plants, except by means of a hand held hose. -Irrigation systems may be used from 5:01 PM to 8:59 AM.
-Washing of vehicles, other than by commercial car wash.
-Washing of exterior building surfaces, parking lots, driveways or sidewalks, except as needed to apply paint, preservatives, stucco, pavement or cement.
