and on odd numbered days, odd numbered homes
• No filling of swimming pools or washing of vehicles
• The hours for the Kava Family Splash Pad will be reduced to 2-5 pm

This action was taken due to MN Department of Natural Resources (DNR) request for towns to
restrict outdoor water use because of significant drought conditions.

In addition, Barnesville’s water tower will be out of operation for 4 weeks due to maintenance.

Any residents that have questions about the water restrictions should contact City Hall at
