In this Sept. 12, 2012 photo, a woman fishes on Lake Decatur, which was built on the Sangamon River in the 1920s to serve the town and another local agricultural processor, in Decatur, Ill. As the drought of 2012 grew drier by the hot summer week, many Midwestern towns turned to water-use restrictions to preserve what they had. (AP Photo/Seth Perlman)
