Effective immediately, a mandatory ban is in effect on all outdoor water use weekends from 6 p.m. Friday through midnight Sunday, in Narragansett and South Kingstown, until further notice.

On weekdays each water utility is imposing an outdoor water use ban on alternate odd and even days. Customers with an odd number street address may water only on odd number weekdays, while customers with an even number street address may water only on even number weekdays.

This watering ban is being enacted to ensure sufficient supply to meet customer needs. Water customers are also encouraged to use water wisely.

This ban stems from recent dry conditions and heavy consumer demand. SUEZ Water Rhode Island, and the Towns of South Kingstown and Narragansett, confirm this affects the following water system customers:  

-SUEZ Water Rhode Island water system customers

-Town of South Kingstown South Shore and Middlebridge water system customers

-Town of Narragansett water system customers

Please note that these restrictions do not affect Kingston Water District customers.
