Northampton, MA) – Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to spare.  Northampton’s DPW has put a water ban in place in the city.  The ban is required by the state because the stream flow in the Mill River has dropped below the DEP’s threshhold for a three day period.  Yesterday’s rains will help, but for now, the ban prohibits all nonessential outdoor water use between 9am and 5 pm.  That includes watering lawns and washing cars.
