Officials say the dwindling water levels of a reservoir used to cool the plant near Burlington do not pose any safety risk.
Wolf Creek officials say it would be difficult to operate the plant if the drought continues for the next several months.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/PoF9zd ) the water office says the reservoir was about 75 percent full on Aug. 1. But the office projects the lake will be at only 5 percent capacity by Nov. 1.
