The City of Sartell issued a watering ban June 9 due to extremely low water levels. No irrigation is allowed on public or private properties, and the Watab Park Splash Pad has been closed. Anyone found watering up until the ban is lifted may receive a citation – $100 for the first citation and each consecutive violation increases by $100 increments.
Celebration Pool will remain open and is unaffected by the watering ban at this time.
Public works utility crews will be monitoring water levels and will communicate updates with residents and businesses.
