Still no water in Konawa


KONAWA, Okla. – Work crews continue to try to fix a problem that has left people in Konawa without running water for over two days.  

Officials have yet to pinpoint what has caused the water outage.  

Workers were out replacing blow-back valves at the city wells Tuesday afternoon.

They were also looking for any pipe leaks.  

Mayor Virginia Simms said the city has a history of water problems but lacks the funding to make all the repairs at once.

“The water lines really need to be replaced,” Mayor Simms said. “The water meters need to be replaced. I mean everything is so old and so corroded.”

The city is offering free water to residents at city hall. 

People can fill up water jugs and pickup bottles of water.

City officials also have a place for people to take showers.

It is still unclear when the water will be back on.
