Drought conditions impacting water availability

(Continued)

DUNCAN —

Brooks said there have been some work to set up a rainy day fun, or better yet, a drought-relief fund to provide aid during the drought.
Although water is needed throughout the state for drinking, in Stephens County and Southwest Oklahoma, there is also a need of water for agriculture. Dorman and Barrington said the water is important to keeping Oklahoma alive with food and water because of the state’s agriculture.
“You can’t live without water,” Barrington said. “We can’t live without food.”
Barrington said the main thing anyone can do to relieve Oklahoma of drought conditions is to pray for rain.
“Really, we’re in a bad situation,” Barrington said. “We’re the one’s drying up out here.”
