The City of Redwood Falls has implemented mandatory watering restrictions starting today, Friday, June 18th, 2021.
Lawn watering and irrigation will be limited to every other day, based on address numbers. Those properties with even-numbered addresses can water on even-numbered days, while odd-numbered addresses can water on odd-numbered days.
Additionally, because of how much water is lost to evaporation, no watering is permitted between the hours of 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Water of newly sodded or seeded yards is exempt from the odd and even day restriction. Properties with over seeding or spot repair of established yards can water those specific areas daily using a hand-controlled hose during allowed times.
Hand watering of newly planted trees, flower pots, baskets, and vegetable gardens is permitted at any time.
Activities such as car washing, water toys, and filling of small swimming pools are exempt.
Any sprinkler system that is not connected to the City water system is exempt.
The purpose of the restriction is to reduce peak usage in areas served by the City water system.
These restrictions will remain in place until further notice.
