City of Ada Continues Water Restrictions Despite Recent Rainfalls
Ada, MN — The grass may be greener but that doesn’t mean water restrictions will be ending in the city of Ada and area communities anytime soon. Even after more than a handful of inches of rain has fallen in the past two weeks, Ada Public Works Director Brian Rasmussen says the city, and more importantly the Minnesota DNR, is more concerned about long-term effects of the drought and that water restrictions will likely stay in place for the rest of the fall.
Under current water restrictions, all non-essential outdoor municipal water use is banned, including irrigation and lawn watering, car washing, pool filling, and power washes. The good news is that the recent rains have greened up lawns, but as residents return to mowing their lawns Rasmussen is reminding residents that it is illegal to blow grass clippings into city streets.
