Hot Dry Summer Increases Use of Limited Water Supply in Osceola
OSCEOLA, Iowa-A dry and sometimes hot summer has led to some concern over the water supply in Osceola. Brandon Patterson Osceola Water Superintendent noticed water usage was higher than expected in early summer. “The thing that we're a little concerned about at this time is what we're seeing is trends that we saw back in 2012,” said Patterson. “That puts us right on track to pull out our conservation ordinance and review that.”
