Within the past couple of days, the Windom Water Department issued a water use advisory for its customers.
The move came as the DNR placed the state into a drought warning phase. Officials from the state DNR have asked all community water systems to reduce their overall water usage.
“There is not a shortage of water yet,” said Windom Water/Wastewater Superintendent Ryan Anderson. “However, we are asking all residents and businesses to exercise good water use habits during this time. We are requesting that users refrain from any unnecessary water usage including lawn watering and washing vehicles and equipment.
For more details on the water advisory, see the July 28 edition of the Cottonwood County Citizen and Citizen eEdition.
