Sequoyah County rural water customers are being asked to voluntarily conserve water usage until further notice.
Vance Mooney, rural water superintendent, said that water levels in storage tanks throughout the county are very low due to previous problems and record water usage this past weekend.
"We set a record this weekend for water usage across the county. We pumped out close to 3 million gallons on Friday and on Saturday," said Mooney.
Customers are asked to not water lawns, fill swimming pools, wash cars or use excessive amounts of water.
"We just haven't been able to build up the proper amount of water that we need to have on hand," said Mooney. "We need to get our tanks full in case we have a pump burn up or a major line break or leak."
