The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/WHSuVu) that the city council is expected to hear options about water issues during a workshop meeting Feb. 26. The council won't vote on a water restriction during that meeting, however. If City Council members consider placing water restrictions on residents, they would so during a regular council meeting.
Ben Nelson, of Wichita's public works and utilities department, said the department is looking at how best to prolong water supplies until the drought subsides.
Wichita has tried to curb demand for water by charging more for residents using the most water in the summer.
