Don’t fret whether there’ll be enough water flowing from Iola taps this winter for a hot, soothing bath.

If it doesn’t rain between now and then — some arrived in Iola Friday — John Redmond Dam and Reservoir and similar impoundments, Council Grove and Marion, have enough water to tide over those who draw from the Neosho River until the early months of 2014.

That’s an analysis made by the Kansas Water Office and given to Toby Ross, Iola water plant manager, and others this week. The Register received the same assessment.
