City of Ada Puts Water Restrictions in Place; Asks Residents to Conserve Water

July 22, 2021 News -- KRJB-KRJM-KKCQ 0

Ada, MN — The City of Ada is now joining a long list of cities asking residents to conserve water during this stretch of drought. As part of the restrictions being mandated by the state, residents on the east side of town are only allowed to water their lawn on even days of the month and residents on the west side of town are being asked to only water their lawn on odd days of the month. Residents may continue to water their plants and gardens on their normal schedule, however City of Ada Public Works Director Brian Rasmussen encourages residents to consider cutting back on their daily water usage if possible.

Rasmussen says the city of Ada still has a healthy water supply at the moment, but he has noticed that aquifers where they draw their water from are not replenishing as fast as they used to.

The city of Ada is also planning to work with other high-end water users in town to restrict their use. The restrictions will be in place until drought conditions improve and it’s possible there will be additional restrictions imposed in the future.
