Merrimac lifts four-month water ban

MERRIMAC — After enduring four months of restrictions, residents can go back to freely using water in town again.

The Merrimac Water Department this week ended the water ban that had been in place since June 21.

Previously, the department’s pumping capability had been compromised due to the Wallace Way Treatment Plant being off-line. But officials said the plant is now up and running.

But while the plant is currently maintaining adequate water levels, officials are still asking residents to conserve water whenever possible.

Anyone with questions can call the Merrimac Water Department at 978-346-8417.
