West Fargo Says No Lawn Watering

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE Monday 9 a.m.: West Fargo City public works says people with new sod/seed are exempt from this new watering ban, but must abide by earlier restrictions when watering those areas. Odd/Even: If your house number ends with an odd number, you're allowed to water new sod/seed on odd-numbered days (likewise with even addresses/days). You must also follow hours restrictions: Absolutely no watering between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., which means new sod/seed can only be watered after 6 p.m. and before 10 a.m.

ORIGINAL STORY: This week's extreme heat is prompting the City of West Fargo to expand its watering restrictions and issue a "no lawn watering" order.

The public works department says it's down a well because of repairs and the city is going through about four million gallons of water a day -- about double what's normal this time of year.

West Fargo has already asked people to conserve water. Once the lawn watering ban is lifted, the city will go back to its odd-even watering cycle based on property addresses.
