Moorhead Public Service Implements Voluntary Watering Restrictions

Moorhead Public Service (MPS) is implementing voluntary watering restrictions to be effective June 1, 2013, to October 1, 2013.


MPS’ water shortage emergency plan includes a section on odd‑even lawn watering restrictions as follows: Lawn watering and car washing will be limited to all customers by street address. All customers with even‑numbered addresses can use water for lawn watering and car washing on even‑numbered days only. All customers with odd‑numbered addresses can use water for lawn watering and car washing on odd‑numbered days only.


The following uses are exempt from the watering restrictions:

1. Gardens

2. Flowers

3. Newly‑planted trees and shrubs

4. Newly‑sodded or seeded lawns


The definition of newly‑planted or newly‑sodded is planted or seeded within the last 12 months. Restrictions remain voluntary unless summer weather conditions warrant.

MPS is a community-owned utility serving the residents of Moorhead, Minnesota, with electricity and water.
