PIERRE (AP) - Gov. Dennis Daugaard is reminding east river residents to wait to mow ditches along the state's highways.

The governor said Thursday that people cannot mow right-of-way highway ditches in counties east of the Missouri River until July 10. As of Wednesday, mowing is allowed in west river counties.

Daugaard says roadside ditches provide valuable nesting cover for pheasants.

The state Department of Transportation can mow to control noxious weeds and provide safety to motorists.
