Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Earl Metzler announces that beginning today, the Timberlane Regional School District, as a whole, will increase its efforts in conserving water in light of the recent drought. Conservation efforts will include banning the use of all irrigation systems for all schools and fields, and instructing staff and students to minimize water usage in all buildings.
Dr. Metzler notes, “The New Hampshire Drought Management Team indicates relief is not predicted in the near future and drought conditions will likely persist throughout the winter. As such, the District will partner with the communities to conserve water usage. This self-imposed and voluntary water ban at our schools will likely have a negative impact on the condition of our athletic fields; however, the regional concern for long term water sustainability outweighs this concern.”
In closing, Dr. Metzler encourages all District families to consider limiting water usage at home as ground water supplies affect everyone.
