Effective immediately the City of North Mankato is lifting the previous  enforcement of water conservation measures, as the state has lifted the drought warning phase for the area.

The City still encourages residents put into action an even/odd water and irrigation plan to  continue water conservation habits. The following procedures are still recommended: Residents in Lower North Mankato are encouraged to water lawns on even days. Residents in Upper North Mankato are encouraged to water lawns on odd days. Do not irrigate lawns between the hours of 10:00am and 6:00pm to reduce evaporation. Let lawns grow longer. 

Check and repair any leaks in irrigation lines, water softeners, water heaters, toilets, etc. Run full loads of laundry whenever possible. 

Run dishwashers only when full. 

The City will notify residents should the drought warning phase resume.
