Fargo to enact watering restrictions

Beginning Memorial Day and ending Labor Day, Fargo residents' water use is restricted because of high demand, city officials said in a news release issued this morning.

Beginning Memorial Day and ending Labor Day, Fargo residents' water use is restricted because of high demand, city officials said in a news release issued this morning.

"We need residents to help conserve our water supply, especially in the summer months when the demand for water rises significantly," said Ron Hendricksen, water plant superintendent, in a press release.

Residents whose street address ends with an odd number can water their lawn on odd-numbered days. Those with addresses ending in even numbers can water on even-numbered days.

Lawns with new seed or sod can be watered for 15 consecutive days.

Exceptions to the city watering policy include watering gardens, flowers and newly planted trees and shrubs.

Residents who violate the policy will first receive a warning for noncompliance, but continued disregard will result in water services being disconnected.

A fee of $25 is required to reconnect.
