In addition, we maintain more than 7,000 linear miles of combined water and wastewater pipes throughout our distribution system, including the 100-mile Atoka pipeline. That's like driving from Southern California to North Carolina, then back. #adaywithoutwater #valuewater
Today, the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust provides an annual average of 100 million gallons treated water daily to approx. 1.4 million people in Central Oklahoma. We also operate two water treatment plants and four wastewater treatment plants. #adaywithoutwater #valueofwater
Over the decades, City leaders created a sustainable water supply that comprises seven surface reservoirs spanning 250 miles across the state. This conditions the supply against challenges of climate change in drought-prone areas of our state. #adaywithoutwater #valueofwater
The Overholser Dam was dedicated on April 22. For 30 years, Lake Overholser stood as the City's only water supply until the completion Lake Hefner in 1947. It marked a pivotal turning point for our City's future and growth. #adaywithoutwater #valueofwater
By 1911, the city's population was 200,000. City leaders hired a consultant to present options for a reliable water source near the North Canadian. In 1916, Mayor Ed Overholser convinced citizens to fund a new reservoir and dam for $1.5 million. #adaywithoutwater #valueofwater
The City built its first waterworks plant in 1906 near NW 5th and Penn. It drew water from the No. Canadian River, and pumped out 10 million gal of treated water daily. But the river proved prone to drought, and City leaders sought a better solution. #adaywithoutwater #valuewater
The City's water history started with a bucket. Early residents brought buckets to the Santa Fe depot for the station master's wife to fill. Within a short time, the City built up to 19 wells, and drew more than 1 million gallons per day. #adaywithoutwater #valuewater
Today, the OKC Utilities Department joins thousands of water utilities in recognizing the national #adaywithoutwater from the #valuewater campaign. We'll share a bit about OK's water history, and highlight the critical role that water plays in our health and economic success.

High water reported at NW 6th & N Penn. Never drive through flooded roadways - you do not know the condition of the road under the water. Turn around, don’t drown.
To report a natural gas odor leave the area immediately and then call 911 and 800‑458‑4251 (@OklahomaNatural). To report power outages call @OGandE at 405-272-9595.

🚨 Sirens going off in parts of South OKC. If you are in this area, seek shelter immediately as these storms roll through.
Get flashlights or other battery-powered lighting ready NOW. Charge your devices. Do not use candles for light if you should lose power. If you must use a generator, use it outside only, well away from the home so that the exhaust (and carbon monoxide) does not enter your home.

As these storms pass through and ultimately leave us, be aware of downed power lines. Don't get out if you don't have to - it's dark and you may not see the downed lines. Do NOT driver over them or touch anything they are touching if this should happen. #StaySafe 7:37 p.m.

🚨 Remember that our tornado warning system sounds off in localized areas, and not citywide. Always seek multiple sources of storm information including TV, radio or social media, if you can. Learn about our siren warning system here:okc.gov/residents/prep…0
Always a question that comes up. Fire stations are not shelters either. Please have a plan ahead of time. If you are on the top floor of an apartment, make friends with those on the first floor. Get to the lowest floor if you don’t have a basement or storm shelter. twitter.com/cityofokc/stat…
