St. Paul Regional Water Services (SPRWS) is encouraging residents to start water conservation efforts by following the watering schedules involving odd and even watering and watering time restrictions. 

Amid the ongoing drought conditions that continue to impact communities across the state, SPRWS announced water conservation measures start Tuesday. 

Effective Tuesday, SPRWS is encouraging water customers to engage in these watering schedules:  

  • Odd/Even Watering 
    • SPRWS customers with odd-numbered addresses are asked to limit outdoor watering to odd-numbered days of the month.
    • SPRWS customers with even-numbered addresses are asked to limit outdoor water use to even-numbered days of the month.
  • Watering Time Restrictions: 
    • SPRWS customers are asked to limit outdoor watering to the cooler times of the day - before noon or after 6 p.m. - to minimize evaporation.
  • Exceptions Include: 
    • Commercial uses of outdoor water, including nurseries or community gardens.
    • Watering of new sod or seed if daily watering is required. It is recommended that any planting of new sod or seeds be delayed until the fall or until drought conditions subside.

Last week, the city of Minneapolis also urged residents to conserve water.
