Pursuant to Chapter XXV, Section 5 of the Town of Hamilton By-Laws, the Hamilton Board of Selectmen has determined that there exists or impends a shortage of water, and that conservation measures are appropriate to ensure that an adequate supply of water is available to all users, including fire-fighting operations and that water withdrawal volumes remain within permitted and registration limits; and that any conditions set forth in the Town’s water withdrawal Permit are satisfied. As a result, the Board hereby declares a State of Water Supply Conservation.
