Rapid City officials remind residents to conserve water as neighbor complaints increase

By  | 

As neighbor complaints increase, Rapid City would like to remind the public that water restrictions are in effect now.

Rapid City Water Superintendent Jeff Crockett says their office gets several complaints of people watering on a daily basis.

Crockett says mandatory water conservation measures have been in place for more than 20 years, and it's important to follow them if we want to have water throughout the whole summer.

Rapid City Water Superintendent Jeff Crockett says, "It's important to conserve water just because it's a finite resource and as Rapid City gets bigger, more people are using it. There's more demands for that water. And again, we just want to make sure that folks have enough water through the course of a long hot summer."

Watering is not allowed between 9 A.M. and 6 P.M. daily.

Odd-numbered household addresses are allowed to water on odd-numbered calendar days.

Even-numbered household addresses are allowed to water on even-numbered days.

After two notices of non-compliance, violators can face fines up to $120.
