This is an important reminder that we are still in an outdoor water ban. This means NO outdoor water use:
Exceptions include: Fruits, vegetables, and herbs may be watered using a hand-held watering can or bucket, Washing/bathing of domesticated household animals is permitted and Livestock, fowl, farm animals, etc. may be watered using buckets only.
A $250 fine + any other expenses will occur for first offense.
Money spent on trucking in water:
2023: More than $72,000
2022: More than $115,000
2021: More than $47,000
2020: More than $152,000
We must be able to meet the high demand of water use (such as 4th of July weekend) all year long before the state will clear us of our Source Water Capacity violation (in place since 2019). We are not trucking in water so select residents can sneak outdoor water use, but so that we can all live day to day life. Until such time our wells are able to sustain enough water for all residents, all year long, we will remain in an outdoor water ban.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
Board of Commissioners
Please do not take gravel/sand from the sand pit for personal use. This year's material piles are for contractor use only.
Our Dump/transfer station (at 44 Municipal Drive) has a sand pile for all Hillsborough residents to take from and use.

This is important, as pipes bursting during winter months in unoccupied homes has depleted water supply in our water tank during multiple winters over past years. This brings a variety of high costs such as the labor to locate the leak, trucking in water to replenish our tank, etc., that could have been avoided with a no-cost seasonal shut off.
Please review section 4.8 is our Water Service Rules and Regulations for more on this and homeowner (customer) responsibility (located HERE)
Thank you to those residents who have already scheduled their seasonal turn off and properly winterize your home for the season.

As I’m sure many are aware that we have been trucking in water this summer to fill our water tank. While we generally see more water usage in summer months than winter months, we suspect there may be a leak or leaks across the system at this time. This could include a main line, a homeowners line or a leak inside your home. With lots of ground to cover, I am asking for residents to help by checking their own home and surrounding area for any and all leaks! We all benefit with the more of us that are vigilant in finding leaks, repairing leaky faucets, running toilets, etc.
If you suspect a leak please report it!
For any residents willing to help, Thank you!
Sincerely, Board of Commissioners
