Drought drains wells, Kingston fire station opens spigot to help people in need

KINGSTON – Residents and town officials are coming together to deal with the drought that has brought hardship to so many Granite Staters.

Kristen Mason lives on Exeter Road and said her well went dry on Friday. She posted on the town’s community Facebook page to let her fellow neighbors know so they could prepare for a similar situation. Not long after Mason discovered someone anonymously dropped about 18 cases of bottled water on her front lawn.

Wednesday, the Kingston Fire Department posted on its website that residents suffering from dry wells are welcome to fill up water bottles at the spigot on the front of the fire station.

“In answer to the Town's Peoples' cry for help during this drought the Town has opened the use of the outside water spigot on the side of the Kingston Fire Station on the Main Street. You need to bring your own buckets and you MUST be a resident of Kingston,” the post read.

The Fire Department is requesting that residents be careful not to block any Bay Doors. Anyone with questions can call 642-3626.
