Effective immediately, an emergency water ban is being declared for the City of Minnetrista. The watering ban will be in effect for all residents on City water until further notice. Public Works staff will be continuously evaluating the water tower levels. We will communicate when the levels are adequate for fire protection and the ban can be lifted.
During this time, you may notice some water discoloration. When the water tower level gets low, the incoming water stirs up the sediment from the bottom of the tank. That sediment then goes out into the system and into resident's home. The discoloration is mainly iron (rust) that has settled out. Our Public Works department will attempt to flush some of the bad areas.
