Park Rapids is looking at changing water rates to reflect conservation.

Minnesota Statute 103G.291 states a public water supplier serving more than 1,000 people shall use a conservation rate structure by Jan. 1, 2013. However, Park Rapids will need to adopt a new rate structure before then in order to receive a grant for a new well house, said City Administrator Bill Smith.
