RWSD Survey

RWSD Level of Service Survey

The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District (RWSD) wants to hear your feedback! The RWSD is dedicated to providing reliable, safe, clean drinking water to our District members. While working to meet those needs, customer satisfaction is extremely important. Water/Sewer District Members are being asked to complete a level of service survey to share feedback on what the RWSD is doing well and where they can improve. The survey is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete.

RWSD Hydrant Flushing 9/13 – 9/17

The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District will be flushing hydrants during overnight hours next week (9/13 through 9/17). Flushing is part of our routine maintenance program necessary to maintain the integrity of the water system and to ensure the hydrants are in proper working order. Please note that although the water is safe to drink after flushing, it can become discolored. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water is clear. If it is not clear the first time, wait a few minutes and repeat this process.

Message from the RWSD

After discussions on current well levels and relief from recent rain, the RWSD is lifting its restrictions on outdoor water use EXCEPT related to irrigation / lawn watering. Restrictions on lawn watering are being maintained at this time throughout the District. Well levels will continue to be monitored and adjustments to the restrictions will be made as necessary. Meanwhile, District members are encouraged to take voluntary measures to conserve water (both indoor and outdoor) whenever possible.

Restrictions on Outside Water Use

The Town has not lifted the water restriction imposed last year due to the drought. While the water table has improved some, the State Department of Environmental Services is still encouraging restrictions because the weather forecast looks drier than normal as well as warmer than usual (which promotes dryness). Therefore, there continues to be no residential lawn watering in Town. Fees may be imposed for non-compliance.

If you receive a water bill from the Rollinsford Water Sewer District, you are subject to a stricter water use restriction. Details can be found here: https://rollinsfordwatersewer.org/2021/05/27/mandatory-water-ban-all-outdoor-water-use/

Rollinsford Water and Sewer District – Restrictions on all Outdoor Water Use

The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District (RWSD) has implemented a mandatory water ban that includes restrictions on ALL outdoor water use including all outdoor watering, car washing, pool filling, etc. It is extremely important that our District members comply (and help spread the word) so we can bring our water tank back up to levels adequate for fire suppression. Once the water tank level is restored to its necessary depth (hopefully within a week or so), watering of vegetable gardens will be permitted while restrictions on other outdoor watering will continue to be necessary until drought conditions improve. Please know that this is an evolving process and the RWSD will continue communication with District members on the current levels of the restrictions. For a more detailed description of the restrictions, go to the RWSD website or watch the recording of the May 25th RWSD Commissioners’ meeting: HERE (Minutes 48:57 through 1:27:52 and Minutes 1:58:36 through 2:23:18 are when the topic was discussed). If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to the District office at 603-742-8124 or VIA EMAIL.

Ban on Outdoor Water Use

Last September, the Rollinsford Water and Sewer District (RWSD) issued a mandatory water ban restricting all outdoor water use throughout the District. Unfortunately, the entire state is still experiencing abnormally dry and moderate drought conditions. Please note that THE BAN HAS NOT BEEN LIFTED and is still in place until conditions improve. Per this ban, all outdoor water use activities are restricted within the District. We are continuing to monitor the situation and may make modifications to the restrictions as conditions improve. (We will send out further notifications to District members as modifications are made.) If you have any questions, please contact the District office at 603-742-8124 or via email.
