This means if your address is an even number you can water only on even number calendar days. ex. If your address is 1616 Humboldt Ave, you can water on: July 22, 24, 26, etc. We're also asking everyone to limit watering to before noon or after 6pm - to minimize evaporation.

We're lucky to be near the mighty Mississippi, which is where SPRWS sources the water it provides us. This gives us a leg up when droughts happen as we have what appears to be a near unlimited source of water to pull and treat, rather than just what's in the ground. However, while the river may seem unlimited, we are beginning to see some dip due to the current drought. We anticipate no interruption to services at this time, however we're taking steps to minimize our impact during this drought.

Starting Thursday 7/22 and until further notice, the Harmon Park Splash Pad will be open:

Monday - Friday: 10am - 4PM & 6pm - 8pm
Saturday & Sunday: Noon - 8pm

Thank you all in advance for your cooperation as we hope for rain! We're in this together!
