Effective May 11, 2022, a Massachusetts drought advisory for southeast region communities moves Mansfield watering restrictions from Phase I to Phase II water restrictions.

Mandatory outside water use restrictions consisting of ODD / EVEN Day Watering (even numbered houses water on event numbered days and odd numbered houses water on odd numbered days).
Lawn watering is further limited to the hours in the morning between 6:00 A.M. to 8:00 A.M. and in the evening between 6:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. Hand held hose use is allowed anytime.
