Did the City try cloud seeding?

Yes. The City implemented a comprehensive cloud seeding project in the spring of 2014 for $300,000. City officials and representatives from several surrounding counties met with state meteorologist and cloud seeding expert, George Bomar, who has worked in this field for over 39 years. Bomar indicated that cloud seeding could increase the potential rainfall production from a suitable thunderstorm by 10-15%. The City sought joint participation from other entities that could benefit from a cloud seeding operation to offset a portion of the expense.
