A state of emergency has been issued in Bolivar regarding its water supply. The city's five wells have been drying up and one has already been shut down due to extreme demand.
City Administrator Darin Chappell says this isn't the first time Bolivar has dealt with a major drought, but the population density is much greater than it was 60 years ago.
Chappell says, like many cities experiencing similar issues, Bolivar's main drain on the supply is from people watering their lawn.
Recent mandates require only watering early in the morning and no more than twice a week. Chappell says ignoring the rules will result in fines and could get your water turned off.
