Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban Effective June 10, 2021

Text that says 'City Update Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban in Victoria, Victoria, Minnesota'

On June 10, 2021 at 1 p.m., the City of Victoria declared an Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban effective immediately. The emergency watering ban will be in effect until further notice.  

The Mayor and City Council have determined that a shortage of water threatens the City's water supply system and firefighting capabilities. The shortage of water supply is due to the increased amount of irrigation taking place during the heat wave. The City’s water treatment plant is at maximum capacity during peak times which is causing undue stress on the City’s water system. This stress may affect the City’s ability to provide quality water and capacity to effectively address potential fire suppression needs. 

During the Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban, water may not be used from the City's water supply systems for lawn and garden sprinkling, irrigation, or car washing at any time. 

Twenty-four hours after the effective date of the watering ban, any water customer who shall cause or permit water to be used in violation of the ban shall be issued an administrative citation as soon as possible. 

More information about the Emergency Outdoor Watering Ban is available at www.ci.victoria.mn.us/wateringban.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time so we can meet the water needs of Victoria, Minn.
