ORANGE — Effective immediately, the Orange Water Department is ending the “State of Water Supply Conservation” for users of the public water supply. Non-essential outdoor water uses may be resumed to the extent necessary.

The Mass. Department of Environmental Protection allows the water use restriction in Orange to be lifted after Sept. 30 or when stream flow in the Millers River at Erving remains greater than 186 cubic feet per second (83,477 gallons per minute) for a 7-day period. The Orange Water Department thanked its users for their patience and compliance and noted that their water conservation efforts not only lowered their bills, but helps sustain local water resources.
