No water conservation planned for Shreveport this summer

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - With the hot, dry conditions we've seen lately, many of you have probably been watering your lawns on a regular basis.

Fortunately all that water usage isn't causing any problems within Shreveport's water system. Director of Operational Services Mike Strong says the city is not experiencing any water-shortage issues.

"No concern whatsoever. (We) do not see any kind of conservation measures that need to be put into effect. The lake's full and we're doing very good keeping up with demand," Strong said.

To keep Cross Lake, the city's main water supply, at a comfortable level, water is being constantly pumped in from 12-Mile Bayou.

Strong says right now as much as 60 million gallons per day is pumped into the city's system.
