Minot Residents Asked To Limit Water Usage.

Minot residents asked to limit water usage for 24 hours 

Minot residents are being asked to limit water usage for a 24-hour period beginning at 6 a.m. Thursday, July 26, as crews complete a major water line connection at the City’s Water Treat-ment Plant.  Residents are asked to limit their usage of municipal water, including not watering lawns, be-tween 6 a.m.  Thursday and 6 a.m. Friday.  Public Works Director Dan Jonasson said workers are ready to complete the hook up of a new water line from the Sundre well field into the treatment plant. The five wells in the Sundre well field southeast of Minot provide approximately 68% of the raw water that is treated at the water treatment plant.  “Making this final connection is the culmination of more than a year’s worth of work, and we’ll make every effort to complete this tie-in as quickly as we can,” Jonasson said. “We appreciate the public’s assistance in limiting water usage while we have the water plant off-line so we can maintain an adequate municipal water supply in case we have an emergency. ”The $13.5 million project included constructing a new 2 million gallon storage reservoir and a booster pump station near the Sundre well field, and installing miles of new pipeline that bring raw water from the aquifer to the treatment plant. Approximately 65% of the project cost will be paid for by the State Water Commission.
