Burkburnett Removes Water Restrictions

Burkburnett city leaders voted Friday to remove all of the city's drought restrictions.

They said they made their decision based on data from the U.S. Drought Monitor, which has removed most of Texoma from drought status.

The current water rates will remain in place and city leaders decided to increase the base sewer charge by $1.

Although city leaders say they will reconsider the rates again in 30 to 45 days, they say the financial strain from the drought has not ended and they must maintain the current rates for now.
