PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - More than 100 water bans and restrictions have been issued by water companies throughout New Hampshire, and electronic signs along the seacoast are reminding people those limits are still in place.

The restrictions have come amid what the state Department of Environmental Services has called “severe drought conditions” in Rockingham County.

NH1 reports (https://bit.ly/2c7Wz6f ) signs are informing neighbors in Portsmouth and Greenland that those restrictions are still in effect.

Irrigation use is only allowed between midnight and 10 a.m. on odd-numbered days in Portsmouth.

Salem has had mandatory water restrictions in place since July.

Some communities - including those served by Aquarion Water Company - can’t water lawns.

The station says Eversource is spending $30 million to trim trees along more than 2,800 miles of power lines in the state.
