Water usage in the city of Mankato has gone down since the state enacted a stay at home order. Mankato water plant superintendent Kyle Hinrichs says from March 15th to April 15th, the city on average used 357-thousand fewer gallons of water per day as compared to the average of that time period over the past five years. Hinrichs says any increase in sanitary practices is being off-set by the closure of schools, businesses, and restaurants.
