Water Emergency in Effect

Water Restrictions Extended

The City of Coon Rapids has extended the water emergency, which means lawn and garden sprinkling is restricted to certain times of day and using an odd/even rotation. The watering ban extension is effective immediately and will remain in place until further notice.

Water Restriction Rules

  • Addresses ending in an odd number must only water lawns and gardens on odd dates, before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
  • Addresses ending in an even number must only water lawns and garden on even dates, before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.
  • Sprinkling is not allowed between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. any day.

Over the past several months, Coon Rapids has experienced high water usage due to hot weather and drought conditions. Based on current pumping demands and aquifer levels, it is important for the City to maintain efforts to reduce water use. The water restrictions help to preserve water availability for everyday uses and firefighting. They also align with drought-related mandates from the state and DNR. Additionally, if the aquifer levels continue to decrease, it could require expensive modifications to lower the pumps within our wells.

Staff will continue to monitor and evaluate demand, as well as tower and aquifer levels, and present additional information to the City Council as needed to further modify water conservation measures in the community.
