OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City has ended its mandatory odd/even watering restrictions, but it's still encouraging residents to adhere to voluntary outdoor watering conservation.

The city says the restrictions helped maintain adequate water pressure during a stretch of record-high temperatures. The recent storms have also helped boost water reservoirs.

Although the city has ended the odd/even watering program, it still wants people to use water wisely. Oklahoma City offers these tips for outdoor water conservation:

  • Concentrate watering trees, shrubs and cool-weather grasses that will die if not watered.
  • Let Bermuda grass go dormant. It will come back in the fall.
  • Make sure sprinklers water the grass and not the concrete.
  • Avoid watering when it's windy.
  • Water in the early morning or late evening hours to prevent water lost to evaporation
