Date posted - July 16, 2013

water dripSheldon, IA — For the past few months the City of Sheldon has been under a Water Watch due to the drought over the past year or more.

So far this year, Sheldon has received nearly five inches more precipitation than in a normal year, however over the past couple of years the rainfall is still below average by nearly 10 inches, according to City Manager Scott Wynja.

Wynja talks about the reasons behind the Water Watch.

Wynja went on to tell us what the City is asking of residents during the Water Watch.

Wynja says that the City measures the water volume in the wells every couple of weeks in an effort to stay on top of the situation.  And he thanks the people of Sheldon for their cooperation during this Water Watch.
