OKC Officials Urge Water Conservation (Aug 01, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Officials in Oklahoma City are asking residents to voluntarily conserve water as hot, dry conditions put on a strain on resources.

The city says some residents who live on the far edges of the city are experiencing lower water pressure because of the high demand. The city recommends that customers water their lawns no more than three times a week and to do so between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m. - when demand is lowest.

Officials in Tulsa announced similar recommendations Tuesday. Tulsa officials says the city's water system saw about 207 million gallons of use on Monday.

No relief is in sight for the scorching temperatures. The National Weather Service says temperatures of 105 and higher are expected in Oklahoma through Friday.
