“The Living Room with Gerry Bonds”: Drought is topic of March edition
The ongoing drought in Oklahoma is the featured subject in the March edition of “The Living Room with Gerry Bonds” radio program.
First segment guests are Marsha Slaughter, director of utilities for the City of Oklahoma City, and Gary McManus, associate state climatologist for Oklahoma.
Slaughter discusses the extreme water shortage at Lake Hefner and other water supply lakes, and the release of water from Canton Lake to partially refill Hefner.
She also shares information about the troublesome recreational implications at both lakes, as well as outdoor watering restrictions in Oklahoma City, the enforcement of those restrictions and the possibility of a water price hike if the drought continues.
McManus talks about the extent of the drought in the state and the prospects for the rest of the year if considerable rain amounts don’t materialize to replenish the shortage that began in 2010, according to a news release.
