Mandatory Water Ban: All Outdoor Water Use

As drought conditions persist and parts of Strafford County, including Rollinsford, have been elevated to “Extreme Drought”, the Rollinsford Water and Sewer District is placing a mandatory water ban on all outdoor water use. The ban is effective immediately and will be in place until conditions improve. Per this ban, the following activities are restricted within the District:

  • Watering of residential landscape areas (lawns or landscapes) *also prohibited townwide as of 9/28/20*
  • Washing of vehicles
  • Washing down paved surfaces
  • Filling of swimming pools

Please be advised that the water use restrictions will be enforced. The first offense will result in a written notice for failure to comply. A second violation will result in a $100 fine. A third violation will result in a $500 fine. If you observe violations to the ban or have any questions, please contact the District office at 603-742-8124 or via email.

Voluntary Water Restriction

The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District (RWSD) is currently asking that District members voluntarily reduce outdoor water use as local drought conditions continue to worsen. At this time, the public is requested to refrain voluntarily from landscape watering and to limit the amount of water used outdoors for other purposes. We will continue to monitor our water levels and may issue mandatory restrictions if conditions continue to worsen and drought conditions persist. We thank you for your cooperation.

RWSD Board Vacancy

Due to a pre-term resignation, there is an open seat on the Rollinsford Water and Sewer Board of Commission. The current RWSD Board is requesting qualified District members with interest in filling the vacancy to contact the Commissioners with a letter or email indicating their interest and qualifications to serve as a member of the Board. The term would last until the next Annual Meeting in March 2021. Interested candidates must reside in the Water District.

Letters of interest may be dropped off at the District office or emailed to the Commissioners at Commissioner@rollinsfordwatersewer.org. Candidates must submit their letter of interest by September 4, 2020. Candidates will be asked to attend the RWSD Board of Commission (virtual) meeting to be held on September 9, 2020 at 6:30 PM when brief interviews will be held with each prospective candidate. The Board of Commission will then select one candidate to fill the vacancy.
