The rainfall Tuesday may have triggered the draw because the North Canadian River bed had been so dry, a large portion of the water would have been absorbed. The rain meant more Canton Lake water would make it to Lake Hefner. 

“This is a regional drought,” Komiske said. “Everyone’s feeling the pinch.”

Among the solutions proposed to augment Thunderbird is a plan to discharge reclaimed wastewater into a Thunderbird tributary. That will require permitting by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality, however, and approval could be years down the road.
