Ada Residents asked to Conserve Water

8-6-06 – Another Texoma town is issuing water restrictions. The City of Ada’s water department sent notices to residents and businesses on Wednesday. The city says the demand is much higher than the current supply and blames the drought for the water emergency.

The city is restricting unnecessary water usage. Residents will not be permitted to water lawns or fill pools. For area businesses, only essential water use is allowed. Flower shops and golf courses can only use enough to keep their business open.

The city manager says the city does not know how long the restrictions will remain in place.
