The city of Minneapolis is urging residents to start water conservation efforts due to the ongoing drought.
The city is stressing that there is sufficient water supply that comes from the Mississippi River but asks residents to be responsible with their water usage.
As of now, there are no outdoor water sprinkling restrictions. According to the city, if the drought worsens, the city could move towards odd/even outdoor restrictions based on resident addresses.
Some water conservation suggestions include taking shorter showers, running the dishwasher when it is fully loaded, and only washing full loads of laundry.
