[ARCHIVED] Voluntary water use restrictions for Bismarck requested immediately

Residents of Bismarck and the City of Lincoln are asked to voluntarily refrain from any unnecessary outdoor use of water until further notice.

Construction work at the Bismarck Water Treatment Plant has temporarily reduced the capacity of the plant. Reservoir levels are currently low and without some reduction in water use these reserves could be depleted. Reduced use of water will help to allow the City’s reservoirs to be kept at safe levels for any emergency situations.

This construction work is expected to be completed by June 1. Until then the plant will be operating at reduced capacity. The public will be notified when the reservoirs are at safe levels to resume outdoor water use.
