With more than 50 percent of Minnesota experiencing severe drought and some areas experiencing extreme drought, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has determined that the state is now in the drought warning phase. With this designation, the DNR is taking steps to activate the State Drought Plan. That plan requires public water suppliers to implement emergency preparedness procedures which restrict certain uses of water considered nonessential.

In response to the DNR actions, the City of Maple Grove is imposing restrictions on the use of water for the purpose of irrigation, effective immediately. The City of Osseo is served with water from the City of Maple Grove, and thus, Osseo will also impose watering restrictions.

Osseo prohibits outdoor lawn watering from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on all days. At other times, water customers must follow an odd-even schedule when sprinkling lawns. Homeowners and businesses with addresses ending in an odd number may water on odd numbered calendar days. Those with addresses ending in an even number, may water on even numbered days. The restrictions apply to all city water customers and will be effective until further notice.

Automatic irrigation systems should be adjusted accordingly. State law also requires that all new irrigation systems be installed with rain sensors, so the system shuts off when it is raining. Residents are urged to reduce water usage such as vehicle washing and other nonessential purposes.

Water Meter Project 2021

Improvements are coming!

We're excited to announce that the city is contracting with Ferguson Waterworks, a leader in the water meter industry, to conduct a city-wide water meter replacement beginning in April.

Residents will be REQUIRED to get their water meter replaced. This project is funded through water user rates so you will not receive an additional charge for this work.

Residents will soon receive a notice in the mail that directs them to call or go online to schedule their install appointment. (Please wait until you receive your notice before trying to make an appointment.) 

The install should take 30-45 minutes and will be done by a qualified Ferguson team. They will arrive in marked vehicles, wear uniforms and ID badges, and wear proper COVID-19 protective gear. We ask that residents wear a mask while the installer is in their home and observe social distancing standards. 

Residents should clear a 5-7 foot area around their water meter for easy access. These water meters are much more efficient and accurate on reads, saving Osseo money. Residents will be REQUIRED to get their water meter replaced. We thank you for your cooperation.
