EDMOND, Oklahoma -- The City of Edmond has implemented mandatory water rationing effective immediately and until further notice.

The schedule will follow Oklahoma City's schedule and applies to watering lawns. Residents and businesses with even-numbered addresses can water on even-numbered days and odd numbered addresses on odd-numbered days. This applies to only irrigation systems and sprinklers. Hand watering with a hose is allowed every day.

"Because of Edmond's increased summertime water usage and record, extreme temperatures, we have begun to purchase water from Oklahoma City to meet our community's water demands," said Ashleigh Clark, City of Edmond Public Information Officer. "Because of our agreement with Oklahoma City, Edmond is required to implement a similar water rationing schedule when Oklahoma City has initiated theirs," said Clark.

Edmond's daily water use during the summer months varies from 18 to 22 million gallons per day (MGD) with the average being less than 20 MGD. During the last several days, demand has exceeded 20 MGD.
