Menahga imposes water restrictions

The restrictions are effective as of Monday, Aug. 2.


The Menahga City Council enacted water restrictions at a special meeting on Monday, Aug. 2.

The resolution states the city “is implementing short-term water conservation measures to limit the amount of water usage.”

The city’s lawn-watering ban allows residents with addresses ending in an even number to water their lawns on Tuesdays and those with odd addresses to water lawns on Thursday for up to 30 minutes.

Non-essential water use is banned, including the following:

  • spraying of sidewalks, driveways, parking areas, tennis courts, patios and other paved areas

  • washing any vehicles, trailers or other mobile equipment, except at facilities equipped with wash water recirculation systems. An exception is also made for vehicles requiring frequent washing to protect public health, safety and welfare.

No watering is allowed between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m.
The restrictions are effective as of Aug. 2.
