BROOKINGS – Due to the 2021 drought, Brookings Municipal Utilities needs to further restrict the use of water for irrigating lawns in Brookings, the utility announced this week. 

Starting Monday, July 19, water used for irrigating lawns will be limited to every Monday and Friday for properties with an even address number and limited to every Tuesday and Saturday for properties with an odd address number. 

Watering lawns on any other day will be prohibited unless specifically permitted by BMU. 

“Compliance with these water restrictions is necessary to assure the health and safety of the community. Residents and property owners are asked to comply with the watering restrictions, and those in noncompliance may be subject to fines or loss of water service. Thank you for your cooperation,” a press release from BMU says.
