BROOKINGS – Brookings Municipal Utilities is asking residents to limit lawn-watering on Sunday due to high temperatures.
BMU's Lawn Watering Policy went into effect June 1.
"Typically, the policy requires lawn watering every other day depending on your address, with everyone able to water on Sunday. However, due to the forecasted near-record temperatures this weekend, BMU would ask that residents be conscientious and voluntary limit Sunday lawn watering this coming weekend. Thank you for your cooperation," says a statement from BMU.
