As of July 16, Minnesota has entered a drought warning phase, with over half the state suffering a severe drought, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Saint Paul Regional Water Services, the supplier of water for the City of Arden Hills, asks residents to do their part by conserving water and abiding by the following watering schedule:
- Customers with odd-numbered addresses are asked to limit outdoor watering to odd-numbered days of the month.
- Customers with even-numbered addresses are asked to limit outdoor water use to even-numbered days of the month.
- All 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 are extended to commercial uses (such as nurseries and community gardens) and those watering new sod or seed if daily watering is required.
