Because of this notification, the City is implementing a lawn watering ban within the City. Residents my continue to water shrubs, bushes, flowers, vegetable garden and trees. Community sports fields are exempt from this ban. This applies to all residents and businesses using City water, well water or a sand point for lawn watering.
The Minnesota Department of Health or the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources may have restrictions for other water sources (i.e. river water, etc.). Please check their offices to ensure compliance.
This lawn watering ban will continue until further notice.
