To ensure an adequate water supply in the hot summer months and to utilize our water resources in an efficient manner, the City of Huron has established an odd-even lawn watering policy from June 1st to September 30th of each calendar year. This is when water demand is the highest – during late spring and summer months.
The City also prohibits daytime lawn watering during the hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day in order to reduce water wasted through evaporation and allowing pumps to refill water storage facilities for evening peak use.
Permits for new sod or newly seeded areas are available to allow proper watering in order to establish root growth. Permits shall expire 30 days after installation. After 30 days, normal watering should be sufficient for establishing a new lawn. Permits are available from the City Engineer Office at 239 Wisconsin Ave SW, Huron, SD.
Hand watering of vegetation such as shrubbery, trees, ground covers, plants, vines, gardens, vegetables, and flowers is permitted on any day and at any time if the water is applied by hand with a hose that does not leak and is equipped with a hand-held nozzle that automatically shuts off when released.
The City of Huron offers curbside collection of comingled recyclables. A separate recyclable container (blue with a yellow lid) has been issued to households that participate. The recycling containers will be picked up by the city each week on the same day that garbage is collected in that neighborhood.
3rd Street Dam Improvement Project
Stockwell Engineers, Inc. was hired by the City to complete a study on the 3rd Street Dam and the hazards associated with it. To reduce ecological impacts and provide an economically feasible project, it was decided that the dam stay in place and undergo a retrofit to improve safety concerns surrounding the dam.
