A broken line and a pump that needs to be replaced has led to an outage impacting about 925 customers of Okmulgee County Rural Water District #2.

Okmulgee County Emergency Management has set up two portable water buffalo tanks in Okmulgee and Preston.

Officials say those tanks are located in front of the Twin Hills School in Okmulgee and the water district office on Polk Street in Preston.

Director Timothy Craigton says the main pump at Preston has to be replaced.  Once that is done, he says they will begin looking for and repairing a leak in a water line impacting the Twin Hills area of the district.

He expects to have the Preston pump replaced sometime Wednesday.    

Craigton says district customers must bring their own water containers to either water buffalo location.
