Mandatory Water Ban In Effect
Snow Fighter Contract Application
Due to the extreme dry weather pattern experienced throughout the Greater Boston Area, the reservoir system that serves the City of Lynn’s drinking water supply has dropped below 46% of its maximum capacity. Pursuant to the Lynn Water & Sewer Commission’s Water Conservation Policy and Drought Contingency Plan, a Mandatory Ban has been imposed on the use of water in our community.
The public will be advised when the Commission’s reservoir levels have increased. Until that time, your efforts toward conserving and preserving the City of Lynn’s drinking water resources will be deeply appreciated.
Lynn DPW is now taking applications for snow removal equipment with operators interested in snow plowing. The rental agreement is on an as-needed basis with the hourly pay dependent on size of vehicle and type of accessories included.
To obtain application please come to the Department of Public Works, 250 Commercial St., Lynn, MA or call (781) 477-7099 or (781) 268-8000 ext. 6792
