The Town of Danvers announces a change in the outdoor water restrictions to Level 6 effective August 29, due to low flow in the Ipswich River, coupled with insufficient seasonal rainfall.   Level 6 drought conditions do not permit any outdoor water use. This means NO OUTDOOR WATER USE IS ALLOWED AT ANY TIME. The use of sprinklers, irrigation systems, or hand watering with hoses or cans will NOT be allowed. In addition, the filling of swimming pools and washing of cars will NOT be permitted. For additional information about the levels of water restrictions, please visit

As a reminder, violations of the Level 6 drought conditions result in a warning letter for the 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.
