FORT BELKNAP, Mont. (NMB) – Prairie Mountain Utilities has announced that all of the Fort Belknap Reservation is under water restrictions until further notice.
A press release states that watering of lawns or gardens is only allowed from 7-9 AM and 8-10 PM. In addition, the filling of any swimming pools, especially over-size family lounge pools or kiddie pools, is prohibited.
The release states that anyone caught violating the restrictions is subject to being disconnected, with a $100 fee to reconnect.
The restrictions are due to the ongoing drought, and Prairie Mountain Utilities says that they want to ensure the community has sufficient water for essential daily needs and emergencies.
