Ada, MN — The City of Ada is stepping up their efforts to further conserve water during the ongoing drought. Previously the city had limited lawn watering to essentially every other day, but now is banning all non-essential outdoor water usage. City of Ada Public Works Director Brian Rasmusson says that includes lawn watering, filling pools, and power washing.

Exemptions from the water ban include projects, buildings, and developments that are required to have vegetation established by the city’s erosion control ordinance and hand water watering of flowerpots and vegetable gardens.

Rasmusson adds that with the exception of the extremely high users, specifically those in agriculture, businesses are also exempt from the water restrictions.

The City of Ada typically uses between 100,000 and 150,000 gallons of water each day. If you have questions regarding water restrictions, please contact Ada City Hall or Ada Public Works.
