DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Even as central Iowa residents continue to deal with winter, one utility is warning that it could ration water this coming summer.

The Des Moines Water Works tells television station KCCI (https://bit.ly/1g8XlNb) that it anticipates a dry summer ahead and may ask customers to reduce water use.

If Des Moines faces drought conditions, customers may be asked to voluntarily cut lawn watering. But if a drought persists, mandatory cuts will be enforced.

The utility says that under mandatory cuts, anyone going over a set amount of water could pay four times the normal rate.
