I live in Maple Grove and there was no need to water my grass this morning because of the heavy rain we got yesterday night. Other cities around Minnesota might be watering their grass this morning, but if you live in Minnetrista you won't be able to water your lawn!
Minnetrista issued a water ban late on Tuesday night during this extreme heat wave we have right now in Minnesota, according to WCCO 4. The reason for the ban is because of a water shortage and the need for the fire department to function in case it gets a call. The ban keeps residents from watering lawns, power-washing homes and filling pools. The city has also asked their residents to conserve water they use indoors.
City officials warned that residents could see water discoloration due to low levels in the water tower, in which rust and sediment are being stirred up.
