I received a notice that my water will be shut off on Wednesday, March 18th. Is this going to happen?
No. Governor Sununu issued Emergency Order Number 3 which states that utilities are prohibited for terminating water services as a result of nonpayment. We have suspended water shut off until the State of Emergency is over. We encourage you to pay your bill or make partial payments so that you do not continue to be behind in your utility bill. Utility bills are due quarterly. Please see Governor Sununu’s emergency order here2.
