Waurika Lake levels drop below 40%

WAURIKA, Okla._ Waurika Lake has dropped enough to trigger harsher water control in Duncan but the city manager has yet to give the go ahead.

The city's main water source was measured this week at 39.9% capacity. The city's ordinance states when the water level at Waurika Lake drops below 40%, the city manager “shall” restrict all outside water usage, including lawn watering and car washing. However, city officials said they were reluctant to enforce a Stage 4 water rationing because of its economic impact.

The city is currently operating under a Stage 3 water restriction that allows residents to water their lawns two days a week between specified hours so far, already significantly cutting into the city’s sales revenue.
