Moorhead implements voluntary restrictionsMoorhead Public Service has implemented voluntary watering restrictions, which will be effective June 1 to Oct. 1, 2010.
MPS’ water shortage emergency plan includes a section on odd-even lawn-watering restrictions as follows:
- Lawn watering and car washing will be limited to all customers by street address.
- All customers with even-numbered addresses can use water for lawn watering and car washing on even-numbered days only.
- All customers with odd-numbered addresses can use water for lawn watering and car washing on odd-numbered days only.
The following uses are exempt from the watering restrictions: gardens, flowers, newly planted trees and shrubs and newly sodded or seeded lawns.
The definition of newly planted or newly sodded is planted or seeded within the past 12 months. Restrictions remain voluntary unless summer weather conditions warrant.
