• No watering lawns or trees will be allowed for houses and other buildings

• Flower beds and vegetable gardens can be watered using a can or a hose with a nozzle

• No power washing or hosing down driveways

Storm Lake says starting Monday you can’t water lawns or trees at any time on Tuesdays and Thursday’s. Watering Lawns will be allowed on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and weekends outside of the peak hours between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.

According to the City of Storm Lake, residents of Lakeside, Lake Creek, Truesdale, and Casino Beach must also follow these rules as Storm Lake’s water is used by contract.
