News & Announcements

Indoor water usage restriction lifted

7/11 update - Restrictions has been lifted.  You may resume normal indoor water usage.  Thank you.
 
6/27 Update - No change. Please continue to conserve until further notice. We will post an update when one is available.
Continue to Conserve Water!!
 
Our wastewater is normally shipped to Sioux Falls. Sioux Falls asked us shut down Friday due to high demands at the Sioux Falls Wasteplant. We are currently still shut down. Currently our wastewater is going into our ponds which are there for emergencies like this. It is unknown at this time when we will be able to resume pumping to SF.
 
Anything that goes down a drain in your house goes to our wasteplant. You can conserve water by:
-Reducing shower time
-Avoid running the dishwasher
-Wait to do laundry
-Conserve water use when possible
-Sump pumps - make sure these are directed outside into the storm drain in the street(this is allowed during summer only). These should not be going into any drain in your house as that goes into our wastewater system.
 
We appreciate your willingness to help during this weather event.

Mosquitos

The City will be out spraying for mosquitos tonight July 8th and tomorrow July 9th. We are able to get half a town a night. They start around dusk to be the most effective. This does not get all of them but will definitely help.

Converse Water until further notice

The flooding and additional rainfall Friday night is straining the City's wastewater system.

We are asking residents to help us out by conserving wastewater when they can until further notice.  You can do this by:
* Reduce shower time or wait to take one until later on Saturday
* Avoid running the dishwasher
* Wait to do laundry
* Conserve water use when possible
* Sump Pumps - make sure these are directed outside into the storm drain in the street. These should not be going into any drain in your house as that goes to our wastewater system.

We appreciate your willingness to help our community during this weather event.
