Saint Paul Regional Water Services Cancels Mandatory Watering Restrictions - 9/23/2021

With rain bringing much needed relief from the drought in several areas across the state, Saint Paul Regional Water Services is no longer mandating watering restrictions.

"Saint Paul Regional Water Services applauds the efforts of our customers in reducing water use during the most severe stages of this year’s drought," said SPRWS General Manager Patrick Shea." With the rainfall received in the area in the past few weeks, we are lifting all mandatory water restrictions for our customers.”

Mississippi River flows are well above the 2,000 cubic feet per second that triggers drought action measures. Water use continues to drop as the beginning of fall weather brings in cooler daytime temperatures and fewer hours of sunshine.

The utility continues to encourage customers to practice water conservation measures where they can as a matter of general water use.
