City Enhances Water Conservation Efforts
New sprinkling restrictions in effect through Sept. 15
As a municipal water supplier, the City of Shoreview has a long, positive history of efficient operation and thoughtful promotion of water conservation. To continue to build on these conservation efforts, the city has updated its watering restrictions for all residents, including those with private wells.
Between May 15- and September 15, watering restrictions will again be in effect that limit unattended watering of lawns, shrubs, and gardens to odd/even days based on a resident’s address. In addition, to recognize the inefficiency of mid-day watering due to evaporation during the hottest part of the day, and to ensure availability of an adequate supply of city water during high-demand periods, watering will only be allowed BEFORE 11:00 a.m. or AFTER 5:00 p.m. (No watering between the hours of 11am- 5pm).These restrictions will also apply to residents with private wells.
