Low Water Pressure Reported in Parts of Westfield


WESTFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The efforts by some to keep their grass green during this hot weather may be leading to a water pressure issue in Westfield.

Westfield Water Resources Superintendent David Billips says that some areas of Westfield are experiencing low water pressure.

The department believes that the cause of the issue may be from excessive lawn irrigation.

Billips wants to remind residents that there are water restrictions currently in place, due to the Granville Reservoir being off-line since April, so repairs can be made to the dam and a new water main can be installed.

Those current restrictions are set to run until the end of September.

If the trend of low water pressure continues, Billips notes that the city may have to enact a total ban on non-essential water use.
