The City of Sioux Falls is asking residents to limit water usage because of power outages at the Sioux Falls Water Purification Plant.

According to a news release from the City, there is adequate water for all household usage. However, the City is still asking residents to limit water usage due to the outages until further notice. Sioux Falls residents and businesses are being asked to immediately stop lawn watering, washing cars and other nonessential usage.

The City says the more cooperative and neighborly residents are by restricting outside water usage will reduce peak demands on water production.
