Watering Restrictions

Public Works

City Code 906.12 restricts water sprinkling and irrigation activities each year beginning May 1 and ending September 30.  The main goal of these restrictions is to reduce the potential for not meeting the water demands of the City for domestic use and fire protection.  Mounds View has three levels of restrictions, or “tiers”, for water conservation.  Tier#1 (odd/even) will begin on May 1 and be in effect through September.  If conditions warrant more strict levels of conservation (e.g., low aquifer levels), the City will notify the public by posting signs on entrances to the city, on the City webpage, and on the electronic sign located outside City Hall.  These additional restrictions are established by order of the Director of Public Works/City Engineer after notification of the City Administrator and the Mayor.

Tier #1 Restrictions: Odd/Even (automatically begins May 1)

All properties with addresses ending with an odd number (7501, 5207, etc.) may water on odd numbered calendar days (June 11, Sept. 3, etc.) and all properties with ending with an even number (2642, 7258, etc.) may water on even numbered calendar days (June 12, Sept. 4, etc.). 

Tier # 2 Restrictions: Odd/Even Plus No Watering Between 11am to 6pm

Tier #3 Restrictions: Citywide Ban on All Lawn Sprinkling 

Exception: If you seed or sod during the watering ban period, please contact Public Works for a 30-day watering permit (no permit cost or fee).
