The City of Bismarck is asking residents to restrict their outdoor water usage until further notice.
This includes sprinkler systems and lawn watering due to the dry weather conditions.
The restrictions goes as follows:
- Bismarck residents and businesses with even numbered house numbers are asked to water lawns on Monday and Thursday.
- Residents with businesses with odd numbered house numbers are asked to water lawns on Tuesday and Friday.
- If you have a lawn sprinkling or irrigation system that is set on an automatic schedule, the city request’s the schedule changed to affect the current schedule.
Also included in this voluntary restriction is the City of Lincoln and customers of the South Central Regional Water District served by the City of Bismarck.
Residents in NW Bismarck, north of Century Avenue and West of State Street, are still asked to refrain from using water for anything other than essential purposes until further notice. Low water reservoir levels in this region specifically require additional restrictions.
According to a release sent by the city, reservoir levels are low and these requested reductions in water use should assist in getting the reservoirs refilled.
The public will be notified when normal water reservoir levels are back to normal or if further restrictions will be needed.
