The water ban remains in effect across Hamilton, with absolutely no mechanical watering of any kind allowed. The water ban applies to both private wells and municipal water users.
Hand watering only is allowed between 8 p.m. and 8 a.m.. Additional, Hamilton residents are required to limit non-essential water usage.
Hamilton Town Manager Michael Lombardo said town officials have begun to send out warning notices to violators of the water ban and if there are further violations there will be a $50 fine for the first offense and $100 fine for every subsequent violation.
Some residents with a private wells do not know that the water ban applies to them, Lombardo said, and he emphasized that the water ban applies to all water users in Hamilton.
