No Mandatory Watering Restrictions are currently in place in the Town of Erie.
The Town of Erie's Water Conservation Plan consists of three levels of watering restrictions designed to limit water usage. Level III calls for the highest amount of water savings and would only be required in times of emergencies, whereas Levels I and II encourage conservation and enforce water savings during a drought. The Town encourages voluntary compliance with Level I at all times. The table below summarizes the water restriction levels.
