Latest town news & announcements
The Conway Emergency Management Director encourages all Conway residents to use their cellphones to receive emergency alerts and warnings about imminent severe weather and other threatening situations. For directions, please click here.
The Select Board asks Conway residents to adopt water-saving techniques into their daily routines and follow best water conservation practices to help reduce the threat and enable ground water and reservoirs to rebound more quickly if conditions improve. These may include limiting outdoor water use; avoiding watering plants and lawns; covering swimming pools when not in use to minimize evaporation; and sweeping driveways, walks, patios, and other outdoor areas with a broom rather than hosing them off. Other conservation techniques include reducing shower times, washing only full loads of laundry and dishes, turning off the tap when brushing teeth or shaving, and fixing water leaks in household items. Also: please let the Town Office (369-4235, x3) know if your well seems to be running dry–this is being tracked state-wide.
The floodplain lowering project has begun on the Rose field and should be finished by the end of September (with some clean-up time after that). The project is designed to lessen any impact from floodwater in the South River, and is a response in part to the damage from Hurricane Irene.
