Public Notice regarding lawn watering permits
Effective Thursday, July 1st: Due to the drought conditions, lawn watering permits for daily watering of newly established lawns will no longer be available (currently issued permits will be allowed to expire). Brookings Municipal Utilities (BMU) lawn watering policy continues to allow every other day lawn watering and that everyone can water on Sundays. However, further irrigation restrictions may be necessary if drought conditions persist and/or water system demands dictate further conservation measures. Planning for new lawns should be reevaluated knowing that watering will only be allowed every other day and that additional conservation measure may be required. Customers watering daily without a valid permit may be subject to a fine.
