[ARCHIVED] Attention City Water Customers - Odd/Even Day Sprinkling Ban

To reduce peak water usage in areas served by the municipal water system, the City of Ramsey has implemented an odd/even day sprinkling ban, pursuant to City Code, Section 58-118.  The sprinkling ban will be in effect from May 28, 2018 until September 3, 2018.

Residents may water their lawns on odd numbered days if their address ends in an odd number and on even numbered days if their address ends in an even number.

The sprinkling restriction includes no watering between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm since a significant amount of water is lost due to evaporation during the hottest times of the day.  Homeowners with automated systems are strongly encouraged to program their irrigation systems to operate after 10:00 pm.  This minimizes evaporation and lessens peak demand on the municipal water system. 

The only exception to the sprinkling ban is for new sod or seeded areas.  These areas may be watered every day for two weeks to establish root growth, but not between 10:00 am and 8:00 pm.

In addition to the residential sprinkling ban, the City has an irrigation policy that is specific to townhome, multifamily residential and commercial connections to the municipal water supply requiring that:

  • All irrigation systems must have an approved backflow device. 
  • All irrigation systems must include a rain sensor device to prevent irrigation systems from operating during rain events. 

If you have any questions, please contact Mary Jo Warner, Public Works Administrative Assistant, at 763-433-9820 or
