No watering at all in West Fargo
West Fargo Public Works officials have asked that everyone refrain from watering their lawns, gardens, trees, you name it, in West Fargo until further notice.
The ban is necessitated by water usage that continues to increase even though residents and businesses are supposed to be following odd-even day watering guidelines.
One of the city’s wells is also down for maintenance and is expected to be up and running in two weeks times. Once that well is operational again, the watering problem should diminish.
City staff quickly points out that the city is not running out of water, it’s just a hot weather and down well situation.
Consequently, with the continued hot weather in the forecast, citizens are asked to comply with the ban and in doing so help reduce usage.
