Manhattan is growing at a rapid rate and using more water than ever! Data indicates that we have reached our predicted 20 year high consumption rate in 2017, a rate that was predicted for 2032. This is clearly a problem and should be seriously considered to ensure a promising future. Please help our environment by conserving as much water as possible! Here are some tips to help Manhattan achieve this goal:
1. Water your yard in the morning or evening.
Here is our watering ordinance:
WATERING RULES (9-3-8)
Even numbered addresses water on even numbered days. Odd numbered addresses water on odd numbered days. Everyone can water on the 31st. Please no watering between 12 am-4 am or 12 pm-4 pm.
2. Check for leaks with the toilet test.
(Please see full article link above:)
3. Shorten your shower.
4. Use the dishwasher.
5. Cover the pool.
6. Go to the car wash.
7. Get a rain barrel.
Thank you for all your efforts!!!

Town of Manhattan Snow Plow Plan
This year’s early heavy snowfall caused difficulties for motorists all over the valley. It had crews busy trying to keep up with plowing and removing snow. In Manhattan the Montana Department of Transportation is responsible for plowing and maintaining Broadway Street through town to North Fifth Street and out to Dry Creek Road as well as Main Street East and West.
Manhattan Public Works Department updated and made some changes to the town snow removal plan to address future needs. The plan consists of plowing Primary Routes essential to public safety and community services first. Then, as time allows, Secondary Streets East/West are plowed to connect with the major streets in and out of town, streets North and South are plowed next.
Public Works crews generally start the plowing operations when snow levels are 6” or more and as early as possible. If it is snowing in the evening, the crew can anticipate starting by 6 am the following day. Plowing may occur on the weekend if it is deemed a snow emergency with 10” or more of snow.
