Williston Lifts Mandatory Water Restrictions

WILLISTON, N.D. – Mandatory water restrictions for Williams and McKenzie counties have been lifted, officials announced today.

The water quality of the Missouri River in Williston has improved, which has allowed the Williston Regional Water Treatment Plant to increase its capacity.

However, there is more rain in the forecast and construction on the water treatment plant continues, which may at times restrict the plant’s capacity to produce water.

Residents are asked to continue voluntary conservation measures, such as:

– Avoid washing sidewalks, driveways and buildings.

– Take short showers.

– Only wash full loads of dishes or laundry.

–  Avoid filling backyard pools.

– Watering of lawns and gardens are suggested on an alternating schedule. Residents with street address numbers ending in an even digit may water on even digit calendar days. Residents with street address numbers ending in an odd digit may water on odd digit calendar days.
