BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Some residents of south central North Dakota are being urged to conserve water, as dry conditions persist.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that people in northwest Bismarck and some customers of the South Central Regional Water District in the Bismarck area have been asked to limit water use to essential purposes.

Citywide in Bismarck and in nearby Lincoln, people have been asked to reduce outdoor water use, including sprinkler systems.

The U.S. Drought Monitor map shows the region is in the midst of moderate drought.

In Mandan, the water treatment plant pumped a record amount of water in May. But Superintendent Duane Friesz tells the Tribune that unlike Bismarck, there is no water shortage.
