Dry, hot weather brings burning and water restrictions.

The city of Detroit Lakes has a watering restriction in place June-August from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Water/Wastewater Plant Supervisor Jarrod Christen said it's the same restriction that has been in place past summers.


Not just designed to conserve water, the ban is set in place to take the load off the plant and keep the tanks full.
