By the adoption of Resolution 193-2012, the Town of Newton is issuing a ban on outdoor water use to all residents and water customers of the Town of Newton Water System effective September 13, 2012

Morris Lake, that supplies Newton its water, is presently at 27 inches below the spillway and is continuing to decrease due to lack of rain. All customers are advised that watering their lawns, washing vehicles, washing of driveways, walkways, and sidewalks, or utilizing water to fill swimming pools, fountains, and ponds is strictly prohibited. We ask that residents and customers take measures to conserve water inside their homes as well. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

The Town Manager, through the Chief of Police and the Police Department, shall enforce the provisions of this section. It shall be unlawful for any person to violate such water restrictions or bans or outdoor water use adopted by the Newton Town Council.
