DNR Watering Restrictions

Due to the increased drought conditions throughout Carver County and the state of Minnesota, the MN Department of Natural Resources is requesting all communities abide by watering restrictions.

The City of Cologne currently has watering restrictions in place and going forward will be enforcing violations through administrative fines. The first violation will result in a warning, and the second and subsequent violations will result in a $75 fine.

Watering is limited both by time as well as address. Watering may take place between the hours of 5:00PM and 10:00AM. Houses with odd numbered addresses may water on odd numbered days and houses with even numbered address may water on even numbered days. Any watering outside of these conditions will be considered a violation.

These conditions may change pending further restrictions from the DNR or a declaration of a Critical Water Deficiency by the Governor.
