Mahnomen residents asked to conserve water to prevent sewer backups

The city of Mahnomen is asking residents to conserve water during the next seven days to reduce the chances of sewer backup in basements.

Sump pumps should be connected to an outside hose and directed away from the house.

The city suggests residents take shorter showers, limit the washing of laundry, dishes and cars and not leave water running.
