Twice-Weekly Sprinkler Irrigation Schedule

For Hingham, Hull, and North Cohasset Customers
(In effect from April 15, 2018 to October 15, 2018)

Please limit your in-ground and above-ground sprinkler irrigation to a maximum of twice weekly according to the schedule on the chart below. You may use drip irrigation, soaker hoses and hand-held watering at any time.

Good news: Your landscaping can thrive with twice-weekly watering
In our area, plants can live on twice-weekly watering, or even less. For information and tips from UCONN on maintaining healthy lawns and gardens with less watering, please click on the information sheets below.

For our South Hingham Customers: Due to the Accord Tank Maintenance Project, a full ban on the use of irrigation systems will be in place for all homes located in South Hingham (residents who live south of Ward Street, Cushing Street, and South Pleasant Street) from April 15th through May 25th. Only hand-held watering will be allowed during this period.

And, thanks in advance for helping ensure a safe, reliable supply of water for your home and community – no matter what the skies deliver.
