Southwest Missouri Region now in Extreme Drought Conditions

Drought conditions in Greene County are now in the extreme drought category. Springfield’s water supply is just over 88 percent which is slightly below the historical average of 89 percent. While there are no water restrictions currently in place, customers are reminded that water conservation is always encouraged, and especially helpful during the hot, dry conditions that the region is experiencing. Details on water storage levels, Even/Odd Watering, and the Conservation Plan, can be found on the water information page on our website.
