External water use.

Each year Central Hooksett Water Precinct enforces a no exterior use of water policy during the period of July 1 through September 15.

Manchester Water Works monitors Central Hooksett Water during the months of July through September, our highest usage months. Therefore, each year Central Hooksett Water does not allow any external use of water on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays during the time period of July 1 - September 15. This restriction method has worked well for us in the past and has allowed us to stay within our contracted limitation.

Central Hooksett Water does not it own its own water treatment facility. Our current contract allows us to purchase up to 716,000 gallons per day (gpd) from Manchester Water Works.
