City: First phase of water conservation to begin July 16

ENID, Okla. — City Manager Eric Benson announced today the first phase of water conservation will begin on Tuesday, July 16. 

Due to the recent dry conditions and forecast for continued high temperatures, the city of Enid is asking homeowners and businesses to conserve water.

The first phase of the water conservation plan states those with residences or commercial buildings on the even-numbered sides of the street may water lawns only on even-numbered days. 

Similarly, those with residences on odd-numbered addresses may water only on odd-numbered days.

Bruce Boyd, Enid’s water production supervisor, said the city is nearing full capacity pumping water from its wells. 

The city has not received significant rainfall and temperatures are forecast to remain near 100 degrees for the next week. 

“Based on last year’s experiences, we are asking all residents to join in this proactive approach to conserve water as we deal with the upcoming summer months,” City Manager Benson said.
