MEDINA, MN - In the summer, residential water usage rises dramatically owing to irrigated agriculture. For residents in Medina, it's crucial to understand when and how long to operate the watering system, set the irrigation control, identify leaks, and fix typical irrigation hardware problems.

Plants, animals, and people are adversely affected by protracted periods of lower-than-normal rainfall during a drought. By using resources, every one of us has an influence on the world. Water, for example, is one of the most vital resources to use.

Individuals, businesses, and communities can calculate their water footprint by calculating the total quantity of freshwater needed to create the goods and services they use. Visit WaterSense to find out how much water you use and how you can preserve it.

Americans are more vulnerable to flames in Medina if droughts decrease the water levels in our lakes, rivers, and grasses. Water shortages and agricultural losses are other possible consequences of deficits in the state. Water is plenty in Medina, both for drinking and public use. However, water restrictions may be necessary for severe long-term droughts.

Here are things you need to be aware of regarding water usage during long term drought:

  • The grass and landscaping surrounding your house should be drought-resistant to help you save water.
  • Consciously save water throughout the day.
  • The best time to drink water is during the hottest portion of the day to prevent evaporation.
  • You should only water the grass if it needs it. Most lawns only require an inch of water a week.
  • You may do this by installing low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators in your home.
  • When purchasing appliances and equipment, look for the WaterSense label. These items have been tested and verified to operate effectively while consuming less water and energy than conventional goods.
    Instead of bathing, take shorter showers using low-flow showerheads.
  • The faucet should be turned off when shaving or brushing your teeth.

There are no water restrictions currently in place since the city routinely monitors the amounts of water. Stay updated by visiting Medina's official website on
