Duncan residents may be forced to use less water

DUNCAN,Okla_Duncan residents may be forced to use less water than they're already using if water levels continue to fall. Duncan's Mayor Gene Brown made the announcement Thursday. 

In 2013 the City of Duncan's rainfall totaled 28.34 inches. Even though that number is up 5 inches from 2012,  Brown said drought conditions from previous years had prevented Duncan's water supplies from rebounding.

In September the city was placed under a Stage 3 water restriction that limited outside watering to 2 days a week after water levels in Fuqua and Humphrey Lake dropped below 50 percent capacity. 

Brown said if the city didn't get more rain more stringent water restrictions were possible.
