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.

SRPC Kickoff Event for POP!

Strafford Regional Planning Commission Is Inviting You to a Kickoff Event for Promoting Outdoor Play! (POP!)

Strafford Regional Planning Commission (SRPC) invites you to participate in a fun, family-friendly summer challenge for its Promoting Outdoor Play! (POP!) project. It is primarily aimed towards children and families but includes everyone. SRPC hopes to get you outdoors to explore the amazing recreation spots we have here in our region, and has spent a year collecting information on more than 300 sites! View them all in the POP! Online Map Viewer. Partners include The Childrens Museum of NH and Goodwin Community Health, and the project is funded by the NH Children’s Health Foundation.

SRPC will be holding its event kickoff on Tuesday, Jul. 20 at the Rotary Arts Pavilion in Dover at around 11AM, or just after the summer kids concert series concludes! There will be prizes throughout the summer for participation in our POP! Summer Recreation Passport Program, and for those who log their adventures using the POP! Digital Map Viewer. SRPC hopes to see you there!
