TULSA, Ok - The city of Tulsa is asking residents to conserve water.
But what is the city doing to conserve water?
We posed that question to city hall spokesman Bob Bledsoe: “The truth is the city of Tulsa doesn’t do a lot of watering compared to a lot of corporate entities. At the point when we ask for voluntary restrictions which could occur if we exceed the trigger levels, then a decision will have to be made to say, cut off water to the splash pads. Part of that decision is based on whether these are valuable for people who have no air conditioning and are cooling off there, themselves.”
Bledsoe points out the city always tried to conserve water, especially when citizens are asked to do so.
Bledsoe says last August the city shut down the splash pads to conserve water.
