Moratorium on water use is modified

October 20, 1997

Hampstead Town Council has voted to increase the types of uses permitted under its water moratorium.

Effective immediately, outside water usage will be permitted for washing cars, siding, etc., and businesses may resume outside cleaning.

However, lawns are not to be watered.

"Although drought conditions continue to persist in the Hampstead area, water levels in town wells have steadied, and new wells will soon be brought on-line," said Neil Ridgely, town manager.

Cooler temperatures and infrequent rains have generally reduced water usage throughout the town's system, enabling the Town Council to partially lift the moratorium.


Hampstead: A resident of Upper Beckleysville Road told police that a pool cue was stolen from his vehicle while it was parked at his home between 9 p.m. Monday and 5: 20 a.m. Wednesday. The loss was estimated at $200.
