WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The city of Wichita wants to hear residents' ideas on how the region should respond to prolonged drought.

Wichita is in the third year of drought, and it is unclear when it will end or how severe it will be.

Officials have scheduled six public meetings around the city April 16-18 to hear how residents are affected by the drought and how they think the city might extend its water supply.

The public feedback will be presented later to the City Council.

Wichita gets about 60 percent of its water from Cheney Reservoir. Officials have predicted that if consumption remains unchanged and weather conditions don't improve, the reservoir won't be able to provide drinking water to the city by August 2015.
