Emergency management says a 400-gallon tanker truck is in Konawa so residents can fill up buckets to flush toilets.

On Monday, city leaders told News 9 they think there's a problem is at the city well field. However, an official cause still hasn't been found.

The wells are working, but if it is a leak in the 2,000 feet of pipe, it could take days to find and fix it.

The city has been handing out bottled water and is bringing in a shower facility for residents to use.

The schools in Konawa have their own water supply and will also be open for showers. OG&E has also offered water from their plant in case of a fire.
