In March of 2013 the manager of Otis Water alerted the board of directors that the water levels had
dropped 20 feet since last year and recently had dropped 3ft in a month.
Historically, the months of April through September are the high demand period for Otis Water System
and without some form of conservation; the Board was not sure that we would be able to service all of
our customers for the summer without running out of water. Emergency actions had to be taken.
Since Otis Mutual Domestic is not a municipality and does not have the right to impose
ordinances on their customers the Board made a decision to implement a rate increase.
