Lots of Water, but Tulsa's Pumps are Old

Jul 23, 2012

The City of Tulsa has plenty of water in its reservoir lakes, but the age of the pumping equipment is a concern. Mayor Bartlett says they are replacing the equipment as the city has the funds available

City officials are keeping a close watch on the water usage, because they don’t want to over extend the pumps.

Rationing of water will start when the city has two consecutive days of water usage at or over 197-million gallons per day.
