Water matters 

The odd/even watering program includes both businesses and residents, and will remain in effect until further notice.

Residents with home addresses ending in an even number can water their yards on even-numbered days, while residents with addresses ending in odd numbers can do so on odd-numbered days.

Cities that use OKC water also are required to comply with the restriction.

The conservation effort is a result of predictions showing lower-than-normal rainfall continuing through spring, adding to a drought that has lasted for more than two years and resulted in alarmingly low lake and reservoir levels.

“Oklahoma City’s water-supply lakes — Hefner, Overholser and Draper — are just over half-full,” said Marsha Slaughter, the city’s utilities director. “We don’t know how long the drought will last, but it’s important that residents consider water conservation when they plan their landscaping, choose plants and renovate their home.”
