Horton Works To Refill Well Water

(KNZA)--Efforts underway in the City of Horton, involving the treatment of groundwater for refilling the city's drought stricken wells, is, according to Mayor Tim Lentz, courtesy of past taxpayer approval that led to the revitalization of Mission Lake. 

Lentz says the lake water is currently being treated to refill the city's supplies through the assistance of the Kansas Rural Water Association(Play Audio) 

Lentz says the underway effort is made possible only because of plans put in place seven years ago for use of Mission Lake, which taxpayers approved(Play Audio) 

Meanwhile, the City of Horton remains under a voluntary water conservation effort; and while that has accomplished some good, Lentz says more could be done, with residents continuing to be seen using water unnecessarily(Play Audio) 

The voluntary conservation means that City of Horton water customers should use water only when necessary, and take other small steps-such as running clothes washers and dishwashers only when loads are full-in order to conserve current water supplies. 

The conservation effort took effect last Friday following a special meeting of the Horton City Commission.
