Danvers, MA – The Town of Danvers announces a change in the outdoor water restrictions to Level 5 effective July 6, due to low flow in the Ipswich River, coupled with insufficient seasonal rainfall.   Level 5 drought conditions permit outdoor lawn & garden watering with hand-held hoses and cans ONLY, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 AM.  Use of sprinklers and/or irrigation systems is not permitted, as well as swimming pool filling and/or washing of cars.  For additional information about the levels of water restrictions, please visit

As a reminder, violations of the Level 5 drought conditions result in a warning letter for first offense; subsequent violations may result in a $300 fine.  We appreciate the cooperation of all residents during this period.

Residents should be alert to changes in outdoor water restriction levels as the summer progresses by way of Town building signage, cable access television, the website at, social media (Danvers DPW Facebook & Twitter page), and local newspapers.
