The City of Braymer has declared a state of emergency regarding their water supply.
Click to hear KMZU’s Chris Clift talk with Mayor Kenny Rogers:
That declaration came at Braymer’s Tuesday night Council meeting.
Rogers says all residents are being asked to conserve water. He says activities like outdoor watering need to be stopped.
The local car wash will temporarily operate only two days a week, and some other businesses that are heavy water consumers are being asked to cut back.
Braymer’s water supply comes from wells, and Rogers says they are at the lowest level in six years.
He is asking all residents to pitch in and conserve water until the drought breaks and things return to normal.
