Water Conservation

The City of Seabrook is implementing Stage I of the City's Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan due to a significant demand on the Seabrook water system from lawn watering combined with daily consumption levels. Stage 1 is the first of five possible stages before emergency conservation is needed. Penalty fines for the violation of Stage 1 demand reduction measures vary between $25.00 and $100.00 per day for each violation.


The city is monitoring the water usage situation very carefully and will continue to update you with important information.

Voluntary Water Conservation Tips

  • Adjust your sprinklers so that they’re watering your lawn and garden and not the street or sidewalk.
  • Water early in the morning (before 8:00 a.m.) or later in the evening (after 7:00 p.m.) when temperatures are cooler and evaporation is minimized.
  • Set it, but don’t forget it! Whether you have a manual or automatic system, be sure to adjust your water schedules throughout the irrigation season.
  • Inspect your overall irrigation system for leaks, broken lines, or blockage in the lines.
  • Add a shut-off nozzle to your garden hose and save about 5 - 7 gallons each minute your hose is on.
  • Adjust your mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn provides shade to the roots and helps retain soil moisture, so your lawn requires less water.
