Wichita Fountains Flowing Again

Wichita fountain 1 

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita's fountains are starting to dance again after being shut off most of the spring because of drought and concerns about the city's dwindling water supply.  Five interactive fountains that are a favorite of children were turned on Wednesday morning, while the city started turning on 12 other decorative fountains a day later.  City spokesman Chase Fosse tells The Wichita Eagle all should be flowing by the Fourth of July.  City leaders are working to conserve water after being told the reservoir that provides 60 percent of the city's water could dry up by mid-2015 if the drought persists.
