  • WEST NILE VIRUS UPDATE — August 27,2018
  • The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) risk level for mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus has been raised from "Low" to "Moderate" for the entire state. The first human cases of WNV have recently been reported and we are entering into the highest risk part of the season so residents and businesses should continue exercising caution when outside and use repellents, and/or wear long-sleeve shirts and pants when possible to reduce exposure. Devens continues to participate in the Central Massachusetts Mosquito Control Project (CMMCP). Additional information on this public health alert and how you can protect yourself and your family can be found here.

  • Devens Water Use Restrictions in Effect — June 4, 2018

    In accordance with 974 CMR 8.09 and MA DEP's revised Water Management Act Permit issued to MassDevelopment, mandatory water restrictions are to be placed when water levels in the Nashua River reach a certain low point for a specified period. Water level readings recently reached this low point and MassDevelopment is therefore required to institute the following water use restrictions.
    Until further notice, nonessential water use is restricted from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm and that usage includes:

       · Irrigation of lawns via sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems.
       · Washing of vehicles, except in a commercial car wash or as necessary for operator safety.
       · Washing of external building surfaces, parking lots, driveways or sidewalks, except as necessary to apply surface treatments such as paint, preservatives, stucco, pavement or cement.
    The river gauge readings must be above the threshold for seven consecutive days before the restriction can be lifted. Once the ban is lifted, we will remove this notice from the website. Please call (978) 784-2931 or (978) 784-2911 if you have any questions.
