Water Use Restriction: Ashland holds a Water Management Permit for the Howe Street wells, which includes water use restrictions. Ashland has modified the restriction to be more aggressive toward reducing non-essential water use through restricting water usage for outdoor purposes year-round. Ashland imposes year-round water use restrictions regarding irrigation on an odd-even basis. The Ashland Water Use restriction By-Law has increasing restrictions depending on two further stages of water restrictions. The water use restrictions are posted below.
