It is against city ordinance to discharge storm water, surface water, ground water, roof water run-off, sub-surface drainage, cooling water or unpolluted industrial process waters into the City’s sanitary sewer. Drainage must be adjusted to avoid water running into the City’s sewer system.

City employees do spot-check for sump pump drainage issues and fines may apply.
Failure to comply with the ordinance is a misdemeanor.

Hills is a city of 684 in the southwest corner of Rock County, Minnesota.

It is the southwestern-most city in Minnesota and offers residents a small town community just 20 minutes from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The city was founded in 1890 at the junction of the Sioux City and Northern Railroad and the Cherokee and Sioux Falls Railroad. The city derives its name from the president of the Sioux City and Northern, Fredric C. Hills. A thriving community with several yearly activities including Friendship Days, which is the second weekend in June. A great place to live, retire or raise a family.

Thank you from the Hills City Council.
