The city of Sioux Falls has enacted Stage 2 water restrictions because the Big Sioux River levels have dropped.

That’s the word from Trent Lubders, Utilities Operation Manager of Sioux Falls Public Works.   “Right now, we’re at an odd even schedule on every other day watering schedule.  Those  who choose to water will now do so once a week.  That’s based on the last number of the address of your house.  You’ll be assigned a day Monday through Sunday that you can water.  The schedule is available on our web site under the water purification page of “Sioux Falls.org.”

The last time Sioux Falls imposed one day per week watering was in 2003.
