Shawnee, Guymon Ratchet Up Water Rationing

Updated:
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) Two Oklahoma towns either start or increase their level of water rationing because of high demand brought on by hot, dry weather.

Shawnee City Manager Jim Collard says the Pottawatomie County town has moved to a rationing level which restricts outside watering by residential and commercial customers.

No watering is allowed three days a week, and houses and businesses are only allowed to water during evening or early morning hours on two of the other four days.

Water usage in Shawnee is running at about 5 million gallons daily.

In Guymon, City Manager Micheal Shannon has declared a water watch, in which the Texas County city asks its residents to curtail some outdoor water use and make efficient use of indoor water.

In recent days, Guymon's water system has had a demand of more than 6 million gallons a day.
