REVISED OUTDOOR WATERING SCHEDULE

The City of Minnetrista would like to thank residents for their cooperation with the Emergency Outdoor Water Ban implemented on June 8th. Since the implementation of the ban, the heat has subsided some, but we still haven’t received any significant rain.

Effective June 16, 2021, the City will be implementing a Revised Outdoor Watering Schedule for residents on City water. The goal is to allow residents to water their lawns some, and to maintain adequate levels in our water towers for fire protection. The Revised Outdoor Watering Schedule will remain in effect until further notice.
