MOORE, Oklahoma -

City officials in Moore are asking residents to conserve water due to the lack of rainfall and the extreme heat.

Residents and businesses in Moore are encouraged to use water wisely. City officials are asking water customers to follow voluntary odd/even water conservation measures to reduce daily peak consumption.

Outdoor watering should be limited based on customer street addresses, according to officials. Customers with addresses ending in odd (1,3,5,7,9) numbers should water on odd numbered calendar dates, customers with addresses ending in even (0,2,4,6,8) numbers should water on even numbered calendar dates only.

City officials say the odd/even watering rotation program will reduce the incidents of low water pressure that are unavoidable when everyone waters at once.

Officials also gave a few tips on how to best use your water outdoors during extreme heat:

• Remember brown Bermuda grass is not dead. It is dormant and will come back.

• Consider drip irrigation for slow, thorough watering closer to the roots.

• Concentrate watering efforts on sensitive plants, trees and shrubs. Watering the flower beds and landscaping close to the house will also water the foundation.

• Reset sprinkler system frequencies to less time, less often and during early morning hours – preferably between midnight and 4 a.m. Watering during the day causes most of the water to evaporate and thus defeats the purpose.

• Make sure the sprinkler is aimed at the lawn not the street or sidewalk.
