Update September 1, 2021
Due to high water use and drought conditions, the City of Coon Rapids has enacted a Water Emergency which means no lawn and garden sprinkling or the use of irrigation systems every day during the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. until further notice. To read more, visit this link.
Yes, an odd/even sprinkling ban is typically in effect every year from June 1 - August 31. In 2021, the sprinkling ban was extended past August 31 until further notice, due to drought conditions and high water use. This means houses with an odd number address water on odd numbered days and even numbered addresses water on even numbered days. If necessary during periods of drought, additional restrictions may be imposed to ensure sufficient water supply for firefighting and every day necessities. It is best to water your lawn during the early morning hours. You should also set your rain sensor to detect when it’s raining so that your sprinkler system does not go off. Exceptions are made for new sod, seed and shrubs planted within the last 30 days.
