City Enacts Daily Watering Restrictions
The City of Coon Rapids is experiencing high water usage due to recent hot weather. With this high use, the City is enacting a Water Emergency (effective beginning June 18, 2021) which means lawn and garden sprinkling, and the use of irrigation systems is not allowed between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. every day until further notice.
This action is required to maintain sufficient water levels in our water towers and maintain water needs for everyday uses and firefighting.
This Water Emergency is in addition to the Sprinkling Ban which is already in effect from June 1 to August 31, which limits watering throughout the summer.
The Sprinkling Ban means:
- Odd numbered home addresses water on odd numbered days only
- Even numbered home addresses water on even numbered days only
Exceptions are made for new sod, seed and shrubs planted within the last 30 days. Private wells used for watering are exempt.
