The south-central Nebraska city of Harvard is taking precautions to ensure a water crisis may be avoided.
The city has ordered restricted water use for even-numbered residences on even-number days and vice versa. Service can be shut off for those who don't comply.
Harvard Mayor Michael Boyd says that the city has not reached crisis point.
He says there are indications, however, that the city needed to begin restrictions to "an alarming situation" can be avoided.
Harvard is a city of about 1,000 people.
