Water conservation

Continuous water conservation needed throughout the weekend at Fort Pierre

Residents of Fort Pierre urged to continue to conserve water due to a ruptured water main in town earlier this week (June 28, 2021) – but city officials have revised usage restrictions .

Mayor Gloria Hanson said that during the weekend residents can use water for their routine activities, but are asked to refrain from activities such as washing vehicles / boats, filling swimming pools or other excessive use activities.

Unnecessary water consumption could put the water of Fort Pierre supply in vulnerable position to have sufficient water for drinking or for fire protection.

Again, when it comes to watering lawns and gardens, residents of Fort Pierre should avoid watering during the hottest part of the day and may only water every other day.

Effective at MIDNIGHT SUNDAY EVENING JULY 4 full water use restrictions will be put back in place to replenish the supply to the storage tank. The main pipeline is scheduled to be provisionally closed for permanent repairs from July 6 to 8. Absolutely NO LAWN or GARDEN WATERING will be permitted until the restriction is lifted.

Anyone with questions should contact the Fort Pierre municipal office at 605-223-7690.
