Water conservation symposium Thursday night in Lawton

Lawton-  Even though we got a little rain earlier this week, Lawton and all of southwest Oklahoma remain in a severe drought.

That situation has public officials sounding the alarm. They've called a symposium Thursday night to discuss water conservation and answer questions for the public. City of Lawton Public Works Director, Jerry Ihler, believes a key factor in conserving water is educating the public on the importance of doing so.

"If you look at the drought map for Oklahoma southwest Oklahoma is in extreme drought. So it's an opportunity to educate the folks who can encourage their communities to go out and implement water conservation," said Ihler.

Mayors from surrounding towns are scheduled to attend the meeting as well. The invitation is open to all who are interested.

The symposium starts at 6 P.M. at Lawton's City Hall. Look for coverage tonight on 7NEWS.
