Each year Central Hooksett Water Precinct enforces a no exterior use of water policy during the period of July 1 through September 15.
Manchester Water Works monitors Central Hooksett Water during the months of July through September, our highest usage months. Therefore, each year Central Hooksett Water does not allow any external use of water on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays during the time period of July 1 - September 15. This restriction method has worked well for us in the past and has allowed us to stay within our contracted limitation.
Central Hooksett Water does not it own its own water treatment facility. Our current contract allows us to purchase up to 700,000 gallons per day (gpd) from Manchester Water Works. As a precinct, we use approximately 400,000 to 500,000 gpd for eight months of the year but during the four warmer months the precinct members can use up to 1,500,000 gpd if left unrestricted. This would exceed our contractual agreement and the precinct would have to pay for the excess water at its' highest possible rate plus a substantial fine.
Central Hooksett Water tries to watch out for its customers' best interest. If you see your neighbors abuse the water restriction please bring it to their attention and/or call Central Hooksett Water at 624-0608 and we will act on it. Those who abuse the system will be fined. Water has become expensive. It is important we work together in order to keep our costs in check.
Thank you for your cooperation and remember conserving our natural resources is always a good idea.
