Sioux Falls Watching Weather Forecast

SIOUX FALLS, SD -
Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether says rain expected later this week could prompt the city to ask residents to conserve even more water to forestall further sewer problems.
Heavy rain on Tuesday forced the city to resume pumping untreated wastewater into the Big Sioux River to take pressure off the sewer system.
At a Wednesday news conference, Huether said 1 to 3 inches of rain is forecast to fall in Sioux Falls Thursday afternoon into Friday. If that happens, he said, residents will likely be asked to stop running washing machines and dishwashers for at least 24 hours, take shorter showers and stop watering lawns.
The city pumped raw sewage into the river for about three days last week after a sewer line collapsed, and Gov. Mike Rounds ordered the river be closed.
