WS)-- The City of Enid is asking residents to conserve water, due to damage of a  primary water supply line. The main line from the Ames/Drummond well fields was damaged Monday. The line supplies the majority of the water for the City of Enid and many surrounding areas. City Manager Jerald Gilbert said this morning that it will take several days to repair. Meanwhile, the Cleo/Ringwood line is supplying water to Enid and all the surrounding areas, and that puts a limit on the supply. So, be very aware of your water usage.
