Park Rapids mulls water ban if dry weather lasts

Email News Alerts

Park Rapids has established a resolution allowing for a lawn watering/irrigation ban in case water usage reaches critical levels due to closure of two city wells because of nitrate levels.


The city approved a similar resolution in 2010 in case it was needed but last summer was fairly rainy and cool. The resolution states that city staff can announce the ban at any time this summer.
