OKLAHOMA CITY -- Cromwell residents are still without water after four days and the water woes are growing.

"People here are frustrated. It's going to be a major problem for the older people who can't get access to water especially in this weather," said Artie Legg, Cromwell resident.

Legg is pleading for others who are getting water supply to conserve.

Frank Underwood, Oklahoma Rural Water board member said crews worked for 23 hours Wednesday night to increase pressure to get the tower filled up.

"We've pumped 520,000 gallons of water in the system. It will take a few days before the water pressure returns to normal, we're doing everything we can to get the water to the residents," Underwood said.
