CLAREMORE, Okla. - Residents in Claremore are being asked to conserve water until 5 a.m. after a transformer at the city's water treatment facility reportedly blew.
The city requested those in the community watch their water consumption Friday while the transformer was replaced.
Without the transformer, the plant is unable to generate any water. The city is now working to refill water towers.
Residents of Rogers County Rural Water District #2, which gets their water from Claremore, are also encouraged to ration water use.
