Despite Rapid City rainfall water restrictions remain in effect
Manual watering with things like a handheld hose or bucket is always allowed.
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Even with our recent rainfall, Rapid City water conservation measures remain in effect.
As of the first of this month, watering is forbidden between 9:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.
Outside of those hours, odd numbered addresses are allowed to water on odd-numbered calendar days and even numbered addressed on even numbered calendar days.
No watering is ever allowed on the 31st day of month, but manual watering with things like a handheld hose or bucket is always allowed.
Water conservation efforts have been in place in Rapid City since the ‘90s, because people were using 168-gallons of water a day on average.
That number has since been brought down to 130 gallons.
