St. Paul to enforce outdoor watering restrictions amid worsening drought
August 18, 2021
St. Paul Regional Water Services (SPRWS) is requiring residents of the city and many surrounding suburbs to comply with outdoor watering restrictions due to worsening drought conditions.
Effective immediately, customers with odd-numbered addresses may only water their lawns on odd-numbered days of the month, while those with even-numbered addresses may do the opposite. Outdoor watering can only take place before noon or after 6 p.m. to minimize evaporation.
Restrictions will be enforced starting Friday in St. Paul, Arden Hills, Falcon Heights, Lauderdale, Lilydale, Little Canada, Maplewood, Mendota, Mendota Heights, Roseville and West St. Paul.
