City reminds residents of sprinkling ban
As summer approaches, many property owners water their lawn to keep it looking green and healthy. South St. Paul wants to remind its residents that they are not allowed to water
The restricted water ban was put into place to comply with the Water Supply Plan. The Department of Natural Resources and the Minnesota Department of Health require cities to have a Water Supply Plan. As part of this plan, the city was required to adopt several water conservation measures before the Water Supply Plan was approved. Enforcing a sprinkling ban is just one of the conservation measures.
If residents have new sod or seed, the city encourages them to water in the early morning or late evening. However, the city will allow more frequent watering on a limited basis in order for a new lawn to take hold. Visit the city’s website, www.southstpaul.org, for common lawn sprinkling questions and answers.
