Lake Kemp Low

Levels in Lake Kemp are so low, mandatory restrictions could soon be in place for the Wichita County Water Improvement District 2. Lake Kemp feeds Lake Diversion which feeds a series of irrigation canals across the area. Many use the water to irrigate farmland.

Glen Cannedy grows Coastal Bermuda as hay for his cattle. He says its critical. "Its really important. I have some cattle across in Oklahoma, and I must have hay for them in the winter time. The only hay I have is what I make out here, I make generally about 25 or 30 bales a year," he said.

If the lake drops another foot, mandatory restrictions will be implemented. It would limit property owners to using the irrigation once a month. Cannedy said during growing season, he typically irrigates every two weeks.
