Moorhead Public Service Rescinds Mandatory Watering Restrictions, Continues with Voluntary Watering Restrictions

For Immediate Release on Thursday, November 18, 2021


Moorhead Public Service Rescinds Mandatory Watering Restrictions, Continues with Voluntary Watering Restrictions


Effective immediately, Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is rescinding mandatory water use restrictions for residents of both Moorhead and Dilworth, and is continuing forward with voluntary water use restrictions only. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has revised the status of the Red River Watershed in the Minnesota Statewide Drought Plan, indicating the Red River Watershed is now relaxing back to the Drought Watch Phase.


The Red River Watershed’s change back to the Drought Watch Phase represents a significant recovery from summer conditions that required mandatory restrictions. However, the Red River Watershed is still abnormally dry, and continued water conservation efforts are still needed. With this in mind, MPS is rescinding mandatory watering restrictions in favor of continuing forward with voluntary watering restrictions only.


At this time, Moorhead and Dilworth continue to have a sufficient supply of water to meet current demands. MPS will continue to provide updated information as needed.

Proposed 2022 Budget and Rates

Proposed 2022 Budget and Rates

Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is locally governed by a five-member board of MPS customers known as the Moorhead Public Service Commission (Commission). Each fall, the Commission has the responsibility of establishing the utility’s rates and budget for the upcoming fiscal year. Preliminary estimates indicate that rate increases for MPS customers in 2022 may be between 0 and 3 percent for electric rates and between 2 and 5 percent for water rates.


The Moorhead Public Service Commission will hold a public hearing to consider changes in electric and water rates in Moorhead. The public hearing will be held on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at 5:30 PM, in the Auditorium at the Hjemkomst Center, 202 First Avenue North, Moorhead, Minnesota. If  restrictions for public meetings are in effect due to COVID-19, instructions on how to participate in the rate hearing will be provided at a later date.


For thirty (30) days subsequent to the closing of the rate hearing and prior to the adoption of a rate change, written testimony shall be received and considered by the Commission. To be considered by the Commission, written comments should be postmarked no later than Friday, November 19, 2021, and mailed to: Moorhead Public Service Commission, P.O. Box 779, Moorhead, MN 56561-0779.


A formal decision regarding MPS’ 2022 rates will be determined at the Commission’s meeting on or about December 21, 2021.
