Canton Lake low water

OKLAHOMA CITY – Despite no longer being in an official drought, the Oklahoma City Council wants to ensure a reliable water supply this summer.

That means mandatory odd-even watering that has been in place since Jan. 17 will remain in effect until further notice.

Although Lake Hefner is in much better shape than we’ve seen in a while, other state lakes are well below normal level; Canton Lake is still below 20-percent capacity.

So if your home has an odd number address, water on odd-numbered days and vice versa.

Fines for violators begin at $119.
