City Water Infrastructure

This project page includes all information and materials as it relates to evaluating the City's water system and infrastructure. 

There are 1,726 properties in Minnetrista on City water supply. This includes 388 (22.5%) on the North Water System and 1,338 properties (77.5%) on the South Water System. Excessively high resident water demands (especially on the South Water System) and drought conditions experienced in summer 2021 have required the City of Minnetrista to operate its South Water Treatment at almost full capacity for extended periods of time. Additional water supply and treatment capacity options are now being evaluated to allow the City to improve the South Water System to meet future projected water supply demands.

Water Education and Conservation Campaign

In light of the summer drought that contributed to the outdoor watering ban for much of June through August 2021, the City is rolling out a Water Education and Conservation campaign from December 2021-April 2022. The purpose of this campaign is to educate the public on the city’s water infrastructure and encourage water conservation. 

What can you expect? 

Residents on City water supply will be receiving a monthly mailing with an education or conservation topic. Any residents that wish to receive email alerts on this campaign can click here and enter your information to get email alerts. In addition, the campaign materials will be posted on all social media platforms.
