Foley Residents Asked to Continue to Voluntarily Conserve Water During Drought Conditions
A HUGE thank you to everyone who has voluntarily cut back on their water usage during the drought! Public Works is monitoring our wells very closely, and due to your outstanding efforts the wells are keeping within the levels requested by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Please keep up the good work! Unfortunately, the drought is not showing any signs of easing, but with your help and continued voluntary conservation efforts we are confident we can keep our wells at sustainable levels.
Here’s what you can do to help:
- Limit lawn irrigation to no more than twice a week.
- Limit unnecessary vehicle washing.
Thank you again for your support. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and provide more information as conditions change.
More tips on how you can help conserve water:
- Residents and Homeowner Associations
- Apartments, Condos, and Dorms
- Lawn Maintenance and Irrigation Professionals
- The city encourages everyone to use alternative methods of communication to help prevent the spread of viruses (phone, email, website, drop box, etc.).
- Follow city communications through our usual channels (website, Facebook, Twitter).
- Follow the advice of official county, state and federal organizations such as Benton County Public Health, Minnesota Department of Health, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Stay home if you are sick, keep calm and wash your hands.

Sump Pump Water Discharge
To avoid creating water and/or ice hazards for pedestrians and motorists, residents are requested to move sump pump discharge hoses away from sidewalks and roadways to the edge of road right-of-way, so water drains onto your lawn or yard.
To prevent water from pooling on properties and creating a nuisance for neighbors, it is recommended residents move their discharge hoses frequently so the water can be absorbed faster into the soil.
The City of Foley Code of Ordinances Section 1100 defines a public nuisance as anything that endangers the public safety. This includes anything that interferes with, obstructs, or renders dangerous for passage, any public highway or right-of-way, or waters used by the public.
