RATIONING ORDER LIFTED: RWD-3 ends mandatory conservation

CLAREMORE — It is back to business as usual for Rogers County Rural Water District No. 3 customers.

Mandatory water rationing was instituted on July 19 because of low water pressure and drought conditions, according to Rick Stull, RWD-3 manager.
The rationing was lifted Monday evening.
Stull said their water towers are full and the rationing by customers allowed the district to stablize its water level.
Reports on Sunday that some customers along Keetonville Hill were without water are untrue, according to Stull.
Early one morning last week pressure got so low that customers may have been without water for “two to five minutes” Stull said due to pumps cavetating as they pumped.
Stull also said RWD-3 is currently working on 40-50 projects to install larger lines and provide a stronger water flow to customers.
