Hours for the season will be: Saturdays 9-5, Sundays 1-5, Tuesdays and Thursdays 3-7. The site is only open to residential water customers of the City of Spirit Lake and the City of Orleans. To assist with verification residents must have their drivers license and it is strongly recommended they also have a copy of their water bill if their drivers license doesn’t reflect an address within the physical boundaries of Spirit Lake or Orleans.
Because of COVID 19 concerns, individuals wanting to access the site should be wearing masks. This is essential out of respect for those working at the site and current public health recommendations.
The gates will not open until the opening time. The best way to plan to arrive at the site — don’t leave your house until the gates are open! We’ve had a continual problem with individuals arriving well before the gates open. This has the potential for causing problems with traffic on 140th Avenue, and it is illegal to simply park on the road and wait for the gates to open. We are hopeful that this request is respected – if not, then we will need to involve law enforcement and/or look at suspension of privileges to access the site. Please respect those who work at the site and other people, especially farmers at this time of year in particular, who are needing to use the road. Thanks!
