Sioux Center Declares Water Watch as Drought Continues
June 08, 2021 4:30pm
The City of Sioux Center is currently listed in "Severe Drought" conditions, because of this and the ongoing dry conditions, the City has declared a Water Watch.
In a Water Watch, Sioux Center Municipal Utilities’ water customers are asked to limit lawn irrigation and outdoor watering to 2 times per week, only between the hours of 8 p.m. and 8 a.m. Residential and commercial customers are asked to choose days to water based on their address, with even address/house numbers only watering on an even-numbered calendar day, and odd address/house numbers only watering on an odd-numbered calendar day. Those intending to put in new sod or grass seed should wait until watering limits are lifted.
The City is urging immediate action to conserve water. In addition to the current hot, dry conditions, Sioux Center’s local aquifers were not replenished as much as normal this year due to less precipitation leading up to this summer. Sioux Center is heading toward record water usage and this action is needed to help prevent further water restrictions.
“Historically, our customers have responded favorably to a Water Watch,” Utilities Manager Murray Hulstein said. “We’re asking them to do the same and use water wisely to help avoid additional restrictions.”
