[ARCHIVED] ERMU Reminds Residents of Watering Restrictions

Watering RestrictionsWith higher temperatures leading to greater water use, Elk River Municipal Utilities is reminding customers that the City of Elk River Code of Ordinances establishes two use restrictions for residents on the city’s water system:

  • No lawn watering is allowed between the hours of 10am and 6pm. This is the hottest part of the day and most water is lost to evaporation.
  • If your address ends in an even number, you can water on even-numbered calendar days. If your address ends in an odd number, you can water on odd-numbered calendar days.

In addition to the sprinkling restrictions, ERMU is asking residents to voluntarily conserve water in any way they can. Ignoring these restrictions can overwhelm the system and require further measures to be imposed to ensure a sufficient water supply for firefighting and essential needs.
