Reminder: Check the Date Before Watering Your Lawn

Lawn watering has a large impact on the City’s ability to supply water to the community. To ensure there is enough water for all uses, including firefighting, the City enforces year-round watering restrictions. Residents and businesses are required to water on an odd/even system. If your address ends with an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9), you can water on odd-numbered days of the month (1st, 3rd, etc.). If your address ends in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8), you can water on even-numbered days of the month (2nd, 4th, etc.). Lawn watering is also not allowed between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. when the evaporation rate is the highest. Contact the Public Works Department at 952-548-6373 for an exemption or with any questions.
