Dry Weather Forces Cullman To Call for Voluntary Water Conservation


By Heather VacLav

CULLMAN, Ala. (AP) - Cullman officials are asking residents to voluntarily cut back of water usage as water levels in Lake Catoma drop.
The Cullman Times reports (http://bit.ly/O71oLL ) there has been little rainfall in recent weeks and temperatures in the low 100s.
Cullman Mayor Max Townson said lake levels are down while water usage has increased. The lake is now down more than five feet below full pool. While not a crisis, water levels are lower than officials would like. If water levels drop more, Cullman authorities could take more conservation measures.
